Does sub lose its potency?

Fri Jun 27, 2014 12:07 pm

Hi, This has probably been asked before but I did not seem to see the answer. I take the 2/.5 mg strips. I usually just open 1 pkg , cut it up in 4/.5mg pieces and put it back in foil. I am taking 1mg a day split in to 2- .5mg doses. Well my question is this, does the sub. stay keep its potency out of the foil? I took 8 pkgs and split them up in to 32- .5mg pieces and put them in a 7 day plastic pill container. You know the generic 7-day pill containers you find at the Rx. A lot of air in those containers and the sub seems to be more rigged when its exposed to the air. Does it lose its potency? I ask because I want the facts. Does anybody know? Does air make sub lose its potency? Should I always keep in foil? I thought when people tapered they split there small doses up and put them in these 7 day pill containers. Not everyone, but some people suggested that? Please let me know what you know. Thanks.

You're right, this has been discussed before but I can't remember the results. You can try a search query by hitting the button up top.

IMO, I would think the film would lose some potency if left open to air. The films are very fragile and they pack them in air tight foil. Do you have a small bottle or something air tight? My wife gave me an old empty skin cream sample jar. A very small jar but it works for holding the films. I've kept them for up to a week in there with no loss in potency that I could tell. Even a small zipper type baggie would suffice. As long as no air gets in.

OMG!!! I feel so stupid. I asked this question before on this forum and some real good people already answered it for me and I forgot. I must of really fried my brain when I was using pills and other party materials long ago. Or maybe its just my age, oh well. Thanks Rule 62,
