can i refrigerate lortab elixir?

I am 30 years old and just had a tonsillectomy yesterday. I have been prescribed lortab elixir.  At the moment I am in a lot of pain and can only tolerate chilled liquids.  Can I refrigerate or freeze the lortab?

Yes, call the pharmacy as the pharmacist will know if the cold will break down the medication and make it not effective. I would think it would be okay. But please call your pharmacist to be sure!
I hope your feeling better soon:)
