    Oh my gosh. I am so upset that I am in tears. We just got a brand new box of pen insulin vials and when my son put in a new vial he forgot to put the rest back in the fridge. We haven't met our deductable for medicine yet so I just spent $200 for this perscription.
    I stocked up on insulin before the end of the year because I knew we have a high deductable and the insulin is not covered until we meet it. (I still have $300 to go till we reach it)
    We have been really tight lately. I have had to watch every single dime just to be able to pay our bills. I feel sick to my stomache.

    I really do not think that it currupted the insulin to be left out on the counter inside a home.
    I would just keep using it as usual and see what happens.

  3. Sarah Maddie's Mom

    How long was it out? and how warm was the space? Chances are it's all fine :cwds:
    Insulin is not nearly as temp sensitive as we tend to believe. In a normal house it's probably not altered at all.

Diabetic Pet Basics All Owners Need To Know

Certain fundamentals apply to every diabetic pet, dog or cat, young or old. These are the things you need to know about the insulin you administer to control his diabetes mellitus. Schnauzers make up a large percentage of diabetic dogs. These basic rules also apply to diabetic cats. Pick two times of day, exactly 12 hours apart, that you can administer your pet’s insulin. Be consistent, and stick to that schedule as closely as you possibly can. It is important for your pet to have consistency in scheduling, eating, everything. Feed your pet at the time of the injection, then again 2-4 hours later, which is about the time the insulin’s effect peaks. Divide your pet’s thorax (the part of the body where the ribs are) into 7 parts. Sunday’s injections go at the front of the thorax, and each day moves back a little further. Injections administered in the neck area are poorly absorbed and the back end of the body is more sensitive to pain. Give the morning injection on the left side, the evening injection on the right side. Use the three-fingered, pyramid technique to lift the skin, then put the needle into the base of the pyramid. Using a two-fingered technique, or letting your Continue reading >>

    A patient called me today and said the 2 packs of insulin she just purchased (unopened/unused) was accidentally left out on her counter for 3 hours. She was asking me if it's still okay to use. I told her to assume that it would be good for about 28 days starting now. But really, if unopened insulin cartridges/vials are accidentally left out at room temperature for 3 hours, would it still be good (unopened) up until expiry? What's the assumed cut-off?

  2. Pharm_Girl

    The answer is yes. I use a general rule of 12 hours. You can call the manufacturer and they will be able to punch in time left out and at what temp to tell you if you put it back in fridge if it would be good until expiration printed on box.

I'm just concerned about my hwole 4 months suply getting too warm Laura Lu, Your insulin should fare just fine for your eight hour flight. Keeping it in your hand luggage is smart. The planes are kept at a comfortable temp for insulin. Refrigerate it when you arrive and you will be just fine. If you feel so inclined you can get freezer packs, but you will have to do some fancy explaining at the gate. Usually, you can get your packs through the inspection if you have adequate reason.

    I bought two brand new vials of Humulin R on Friday afternoon, and forgot to put it in the refrigerator right away... so they ended up lying in a paper bag on my bed (away from direct sunlight, though) until Saturday morning, a few hours before dawn. When I realized what I had done, I refrigerated them immediately. Would my insulin have gone bad in that space of time? Has anyone here experienced leaving an unopened vial unrefrigerated for any period of time? What happened to it?
    I seriously hope those two vials don't go to waste because of all this... this disease is frustrating enough.

    Unrefrigerated insulin needs to be used up within 4 weeks.

    noblehead said: ↑
    Unrefrigerated insulin needs to be used up within 4 weeks. Regardless of whether it was opened or not? The vials are unopened - the boxes haven't even been opened yet.
    What about the length of time that it was unrefrigerated? Would that not matter?
    I will not be using one of those unopened vials until the next month... and the other one won't be used until the following month.
