Please refer to the product insert which can be found in the medication box, for instructions for use of your specific insulin pen / penfill.
Store unopened insulin in a refrigerator between 2 to 8 degrees Celsius. Do not freeze. Do not keep insulin in a hot place (e.g. in a hot, closed vehicle, on top of a television set) or expose it to heat or sunlight. Insulin that is exposed to direct sunlight for too long may give it a yellow-brown colour. Do not use the insulin if this happens.
Once the insulin is in use, it no longer has to be refrigerated, but should be thrown away after 6 weeks.
Keep this medication out of reach of children. Throw away all expired medicines.
If used at home, you may throw away this injection, along with the used needles, into a metal tin, glass jar or thick plastic container (e.g. detergent bottles) to prevent any needle stick injury.
