Storage Instructions:

You can keep insulin at room temperature for 30 days. If you want to keep it fresh longer, you can store it in the refrigerator. The inside door of the refrigerator is preferred because the insulin will be easier to warm up before you inject it. Always have one extra bottle in the refrigerator as a backup. Insulin that has been outside the refrigerator more than 30 days or that has become cloudy or changed color should be discarded.
