I accidentally froze my Victoza & now I can't get my sugars below 250.
The recommended Storage conditions for Victoza are:
Prior to first use, Victoza should be stored in a refrigerator between 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C). Do not store in the freezer or directly adjacent to the refrigerator cooling element.
Do not freeze Victoza and do not use Victoza if it has been frozen.
After initial use of the Victoza pen, the pen can be stored for 30 days at controlled room temperature (59°F to 86°F; 15°C to 30°C) or in a refrigerator (36°F to 46°F; 2°C to 8°C). Keep the pen cap on when not in use. Victoza should be protected from excessive heat and sunlight. Always remove and safely discard the needle after each injection and store the Victoza pen without an injection needle attached. This will reduce the potential for contamination, infection, and leakage while also ensuring dosing accuracy.
Please take care.
