How should I store candesartan?

Store candesartan (Atacand) in the container it originally came in. Keep it tightly closed and where children can't see or reach it. It should stay at room temperature, away from excess heat and moisture; do not store it in the bathroom. Throw away any outdated or unneeded medication. Ask your pharmacist about the best way to properly dispose of candesartan that has expired or that you no longer need.
