Well, yes and no.

We do keep our medications in the vanity area of the master suite, but it's more part of the bedroom area than the bathroom. The shower and all its resulting heat and humidity are in a separate room.

No, my meds are either in the basement until I'm ready to use them or in the kitchen.

Hi, Becky! While poking my nose around the boards, I noticed this thread popping up here and there and thought I'd add my 2¢ worth...

Yes, I store all my meds in my bathroom medicine cabinet and always have. It is most handy for me, and since I'm in there the first thing every morning, I take my meds at that time, then I keep a small bottle on the stand by my recliner of a pill that I take 12 hours later. There are no small childern around my home, and I have no problem with too much heat, humidity or poor ventilation either in my bathroom or my entire house. I can see where these could be a problem in some homes that are kept warmer than mine, and never once thought about how they can affect the safety of medications.
