I recently heard that medicine bottles should NOT include cotton balls because they ATTRACT moisture---is this true?
I always thought medicine bottles SHOULD be stuffed with either cotton balls or toilet paper to PREVENT moisture.

The cotton ball provides cushioning as the medicine bottle bounces around in handing.
If you want to control moisture, add a silica gel packet.

Cotton balls prevent pills from getting smacked and cracked. Usually they are combined with the silicon gel, so there is no or less moisture.

It is my belief that the cotton is there to keep the pills from shaking too much while being shipped.

The purpose of the cotton ball is to keep the pills from banging around during shipment and getting broken/pulverized.
