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. Store opened insulin vials in the refrigerator or at room temperature below 30 degrees C (86 degrees F). Keeping your insulin at room temperature decreases the amount of pain during injection. Do not use opened Humulin N brand vials after the expiration date printed on the vial. If you are using Novolin N brand vials, your opened insulin vial should be thrown away after 42 days. Protect from heat and light.

Store unopened prefilled insulin pens 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. After opening, keep this medicine at room temperature below 30 degrees C (86 degrees F). Do not store in the refrigerator. Protect from heat and light. Throw away any unused medicine 14 days after opening.

Remember, keep this and all other medicines out of the reach of children, never share your medicines with others, and use this medication only for the indication prescribed.
