Do antibiotics have to be stored in the fridge?

My daughter had bad tonsillitus and we're flying to Turkey tonight. It says to store the antibiotics in the fridge, will it be a problem if we don't?

They need to be kept cool, try an ice pack in the bag.

Will she be allowed to fly with tonsillitis or is this near the end of the course and she's now pretty much recovered?

It's while we're there as well - but yes that's not a bad idea for the journey

No it's 4 days in but first day of antibiotics - can't see why she can't fly? But the AB's should kick in pretty fast. Our family are blessed hmm with huge tonsils so any sore throat can turn into tonsillitis.

I'm going to try and ask if we can have tablets instead ...

The airline might say you can't fly with a sick child if they find out about it.
