How Should Proscar Be Stored?

Proscar should be stored at room temperature away from moisture or heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container. Because the medication is so dangerous for pregnant women, women should not touch broken or crushed tablets if they are pregnant or may be pregnant.
 
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
