1. What should I do if the product is left out at room temperature?
Expiration dates for refrigerated (before first use) product and in-use times for room temperature (after first use) product are based on proprietary data generated by Novo Nordisk and approved by regulatory authorities, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to ensure that potency of properly handled product is maintained while the product is in use. The FDA allows manufacturers to issue timelines that ensure the longest in-use time without sacrificing potency.
Please refer to the individual Novo Nordisk products regarding recommended storage times and temperatures.
2. What should I do if the product is exposed to frozen temperatures?
To prevent loss of potency, clumping, frosting, or precipitation, Novo Nordisk products should not be frozen (below 36ºF or 2ºC). Do not use products exposed to frozen temperatures.
3. What should I do if the product is exposed to high temperatures?
Storage at high temperatures above 86°F or above 30°C should be avoided for all Novo Nordisk products. Do not use if products are exposed to temperatures above 86°F (30°C). The product should be inspected for changes such as clumping, precipitation, or change in color or clarity that may indicate a loss in potency.
