I went out to a party last night, and inside the house it was quite hot, and outside was rather cold. My pill was in my purse the entire time. My bag itself never felt hot or cold, it just felt room temperature. Does this mean my pill is safe? I was never in either temperature for longer than a half-hour stretch at a time.

the best person to ask this question would be a pharmacist as they will have all the necessary information for safe storage. However, it doesn't sound like your pill was exposed to direct extreme heat (such as being in sunlight) or direct extreme cold (such as being in a freezer). So, if you're worried about your pill, give a pharmacist a call to find out for sure.
