Where should I keep my medicine?
Keep out of the reach of children.
Store unopened insulin vials in a refrigerator between 2 and 8 degrees C (36 and 46 degrees F). Do not freeze or use if the insulin has been frozen. Opened vials (vials currently in use) may be stored in the refrigerator or at room temperature, at approximately 30 degrees C (86 degrees F) or cooler. Keeping your insulin at room temperature decreases the amount of pain during injection. Once opened, your insulin can be used for 28 days. After 28 days, the vial of insulin should be thrown away.
Store unopened cartridges or FlexPen in a refrigerator between 2 and 8 degrees C (36 and 46 degrees F.) Do not freeze or use if the insulin has been frozen. Once opened, the FlexPen or cartridges that are inserted into pens should be kept at room temperature, at approximately 30 degrees C (86 degrees F) or cooler. Do not store in the refrigerator. Once opened, the insulin can be used for 14 days. After 14 days, the cartridge or FlexPen should be thrown away.
Protect from light and excessive heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date or after the specified time for room temperature storage has passed.
