Cool Storing/Transporting Malarone

Just invested a lot of dosh in 84 Malarone tablets.

Think I've read something somewhere about tablets turning to dust when rattling around too much (i.e. on a bike). Anyone have experience of whether they'll survive OK rattling in their blister packs?

OR I was considering taking them all out, putting in a pill-bottle with cotton wool, both to save space and stop them rattling. But they always say to keep meds in original packaging, particularly if you may get searched!

So wotta I do?

I packed 60 (ie 5 card packs) into a single box rather than the normal 12 and had no problems even as I got through them.

I still have some available if anyone is interested.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
