Hello doctor,

There are many desiccant packs in the bottle of ovacure medicine? Can I throw them after opening the bottle? I am scared of eating it with the medicine.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The desiccant packs are used to keep the tablets moisture-free. Once opened, they might attract moisture and stick together which may alter its molecule or spoil it. You can keep the packs inside, there is no harm in it. It will just keep the tablets dry.
