How long can I use a bottle of insulin?


Manufacturer recommendations vary, but generally, opened bottles of insulin kept in either the refrigerator or at room temperature should be discarded after one month. Store unrefrigerated insulin below 86ºF away from heat and light and follow the manufacturer’s storage recommendations to avoid spoilage and waste.
