Temperature Requirements

Storing and handling of Insulin Humalog Vials are essential aspects that affect the efficacy of insulin medication. The temperature at which Insulin Humalog Vial is stored significantly influences the shelf-life and performance of the medication. Ideally, your Humalog vial should be refrigerated at a temperature between 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C) when not in use. Humalog vials in use or vials you plan to use can be kept at room temperature, below 86°F (30°C).

Remember to avoid freezing the insulin, as it may lose its effectiveness. Keep the Humalog vials out of direct sunlight as well, as extreme temperatures can degrade the insulin.

Storage After First Use

Meticulous storage considerations also apply after opening a Humalog vial. Once a vial is opened, it can be stored at room temperature, below 86°F (30°C), for up to 28 days. It is, however, recommended that you throw away an opened vial after 28 days, even if it still contains insulin.

Always check the clarity and color of Humalog before each use. Only use the insulin if it is clear and colorless. Do not use the insulin if it has changed color, turned cloudy, or you can see particles in it.

Shelf Life

The shelf life of insulin Humalog vials differs between unopened and opened vials. As per manufacturer’s guidelines, an unopened vial can be used until the expiration date if it is stored in a refrigerator. Once you start using a vial, it should be discarded after 28 days, regardless of where it was stored or the amount of insulin left in it.

Proper maintenance of storage conditions is crucial for preserving the viability of the Humalog vials. Good storage and handling ensure that your medication provides the maximum therapeutic effect.
