Yes. If you have excess Fiasp insulin injectable pens at home, they need to be stored in the fridge.
The best place to store your Fiasp insulin pens in the fridge, is on the top shelf of the fridge door. The butter compartment is usually the safest place. You shouldn’t store your ozempic pens in the coldest part of your fridge. If the Fiasp insulin injectable pen becomes too cold, then the Fiasp will degrade, making it less effective, leading to higher blood glucose levels.
Long term storage should be in a fridge between 2-8℃ (36-47℉). Once the pen is used it can be safely used for 56 days if maintained at a comfortable room temperature of 15-30℃ (59-86℉).
