Keeping meds cool without a fridge!

Hi all, thought I’d post a follow-up to a question I posed a couple of months ago about travelling with Copaxone without access to refrigeration.
I bought a Frio Cooling Wallet, which was originally designed with insulin meds in mind (I bought it from an online diabetes supply shop). It’s basically a pouch filled with gel crystals, which when submersed in water, swell up and keep the inner contents at a reasonable room temperature. I got the extra large size and was able to carry 12 Copaxone syringes (4wks worth) through south-east Asia without accessing a fridge at any point! The wallet was surprisingly effective at keeping the inside contents cool and it was so easy to use.

Hopefully this will help someone else if and when they face the same dilemma I had.

👍 when the conditions are moderate I don’t even bother with cooling.
