Storage of Insulin

Insulin that is in use can be stored at room temperature. When extra insulin vials or pens are bought, the one in use can be stored at room temperature in a cool dark place while the extra ones can be stored in the refrigerator.

Insulinshould not be stored at or exposed to extreme temperature, in other words it should neither be exposed to sunlight nor should it be frozen.
