Regarding your question, storing medicine in the refrigerator is good enough, but what needs to be paid attention is that the refrigerator where the medicine is stored should be special and not mixed with food, especially those that have a strong aroma.

You can see the expiration date on the packaging, either on the ampoule or on the box.
Our advice, if you are in doubt, you should consult again with the doctor who gave you these vitamins whether your storage method is correct and where the expiration date is written. If you cannot see a doctor or are obstructed for one reason or another, to avoid unwanted things you should not use vitamin C. So, hopefully it answers your question.
