    Storing Test oils

    Based on information provided to me moments ago from a pharmacist, remove the test-oil from the refrigerator prior to use. If the vial is cold when the patient repeatedly draws from the vial into the syringe the substance has a tendency crystallize in the vial, ruining it.
    -...It probably doesn't need to be kept cold prior to use anyway.

    Lol! Run it under hot water and take it out of the fridge then.
    Doctors can aggrivate me occasionally but when a pharmacist starts getting opinions or acting like a doctor...
    I just about snap.
    Every time I buy ephedrine at a new pharmacy:
    "I need two boxes of bronkaid"

    Pharmacist: "I cant sell you two boxes there is a limit by law"

    Me: "Yes the law states that you can not knowingly sell me more than 3,500 milligrams of an ephedrine containing drug per day. Luckily that box is only 1,500 milligrams total, so I will have two please."

    Ph: "Well I will scan it but the computer wont allow me to sell it"

    Me: "Humor me..."

    Ph: "Uh! Well it looks like its gonna go through this time."

    Me: "In 24 hours, it will go through again. And again. And again.
    Remember the law I told you about?"




    Every time I have to have a pissing match very similar to this. I Know the law on it and I am not a pharmacist. Now why is it a pharmacist can go through life half assing the legal approach to drugs?
    If they aren't certain, they need to get that way, and leave their opinions out of the mix.

    Dont keep it in the fridge, just store it in a cool dark place. Even if it crashes, and there's crystals in it you just need to warm it up. I use a candle warmer, but you can use almost anything that will warm the oil.

    I never refrigerate my gear. I just buy it and use it up.
