The refridge downstairs has not been working I assume since last Friday ( one week ago) since I put something in there. I had 16 boxes of Lantus Solistar pens in there.UGHHH 80 pens!!! Granted the temp has stayed at a steady rate and gradually went down to the level it is at now. It has not been opened since last Friday.The cellar is a bit cooler and the temp outside this past week has been very cool (averaging 45 degrees I guestemate).Meaning the cellar has been on the cool side.
It says on the box to store at 36-45 degrees. Am sure inside fridge it is 50-55..
Do I have to throw all this insulin out???
It must stay good even at room temp, because it says once pen is opened it can stay in room temp and not to refridge once it has been opened. And it takes at least a week for me to use up one pen that has been at room temp (68 degrees).
GRRR I will call the Dr. tomorrow, but would still like your opinion , or if this has ever happened to you and it is fine or you had to throw it all away.
