Yikes... hasn't been in fridge, will it matter?? 🙈

Yikes... hasn't been in fridge, will it matter?? 🙈

I was just sorting through my meds to start tomorrow and found these 2 small boxes hidden at the bottom of the bag 😩they have just been in the cupboard since Monday, I won't be using them until this time next month and have put them in the fridge now, but will it be ok or will I have to get new ones? Help please 🤞😮

Hi JulesNI, I had mine all stored in the fridge even the ones that didn't need it.

I think temperatures shouldn't exceed 8 degrees celcius. As it's been cold it might be ok if it was in a cupboard but it is against the instructions.

I would still check with the clinic especially as you still have time to sort it.

Sorry it's not better news...

If the clinic gave them to you, they should have told you which ones needed to go in the fridge and how quickly.

If they were sent via a delivery, then they should have been sent in a chilled container with advisories about needing to go in the fridge.

I would try that line to start with...

Hi Jules. We got ours and were told to put them in the fridge but they weren't refrigerated when we got them from the chemist so I wouldn't worry too much. Have a chat with the clinic just in case but I'm sure all will be fine ☺️ X x x

Yeah I agree with Hollibob. The drug company is at fault here. You shouldn't have to find out for yourself!Mine told me when I ordered the drugs and again when the delivery came. I'd phone them up and play hell with them and demand new ones. If God forbid anything goes wrong with the process you will always wonder if it was because of this.

Go for it!👍x

Hi Buddy, thanks for input, I phoned there and they do need to be in the fridge from when u get them so I just need to ask for them when I am up for my first scan and they will give me new ones🙂X

Hi I would get new ones as I was told that this one is very important (trigger shot) and should be put straight in the fridge as soon as possible. Its fairly cheap - buy from asda . .Speak to your clinic and get them to prescribe you again. I wouldn't risk it xx
