(KMOV) – The extreme heat could pose major health risks to those who receive prescription drugs by mail, and pharmacists warn that high temperatures could ruin your medication.

They also say the heat can cause effects or cause the medication to not work at all.

Those receiving prescription by mail order could be getting medicine that has been sitting out in a hot mailbox for hours.

Many customers opt for a mail order because it’s convenient and often times there’s a price break to have the medication mailed to their homes.
