Store unopened insulin vials in a refrigerator between 2 and 8 degrees C (36 and 46 degrees F). Do not freeze or use if the insulin has been frozen.

Opened vials (vials currently in use) may be stored in the refrigerator or at room temperature, at approximately 25 degrees C (77 degrees F) or cooler. Keeping your insulin at room temperature decreases the amount of pain during injection.
