    I received some pens from my Endo's office to try out. I am going to use the syringe with them since it doesn't do quarter units. I really got them to just get extra Lantus. The box says not to refrigerate the pens, but I know that if I don't refrigerate Lantus, it loses potency. What is your take on this? Why can't they be refrigerated?

    You can refrigerate the pens if they have not been opened (once used - needle screwed on and insulin administered). Once you have used one, you cannot refrigerate it again and it is good for 28 days (although ours seem to lose potency before the 28 days.) I did call the company about this because I had used one and then refrigerated it and they said to toss it. But ones not used can be refrigerated until the expiration date. Sorry - don't know the reason

    I don't understand the reason, either. Maybe refrigerating it messes up with the mechanical aspects of the pen. But if you can re-refrigerate a vial after it's been opened, why would be so bad in the pen? I'd call the company and ask.
