Will drop if frozen. Will be unaffected otherwise.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Healthcaremagic.

Yes, the stability of the solution may go down if not stored at the recommended temperature and the efficacy may drop if it becomes frozen. However, if not frozen the efficacy is likely to remain unaffected.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
