Does Bimix have to be refrigerated?  I know Trimix needs to.  I am having a hard time finding any pharmacy that has the ingredients or prepares Bimix.  I live in rural New Mexico.

Evidently Bimix does not have to be refrigerated, although I do keep mine there. Franck's Compounding Pharmacy ships mine Fed Ex 3 day delivery, unrefrigerated and not frozen.

If you have the chain pharmacy The Medicine Shoppe available, they seem to be the only national chain that does it in lots of locations. My local one doesn't, however.

Here's the HW list of Compounding Pharmacies that ship to you, or are available in some larger cities:

Hope this helps

I think a person should always check with the pharmacy on this . .our Bimix has the "keep refrigerated" sticker on it.

Thanks for the info James C. I called Franck's. All they need is the faxed prescription with contact info. Pretty easy. Saved me a lot of legwork.

My understanding is that bimix does not require refrigeration to the degree of other injectable medicines, but it will preserve its life.

My first vial of Bimix was delivered from Franck's Pharmacy in April of 2007 and came in a cold pack with refrigeration required on the bottle.  The next vila also came that way.  The vial I received in February of this year was not shipped in a cold pack and no note on the bottle to refrigerate.  I assumed that they had improved the stability of the formula and that is why refrgeration was no longer required.
