... Does anyone know a way to test enbrel to see if it is still active. Does anyone know if it is still active after freezing? I called Amgen's enbrel support line and they were not helpful. I did a test and It is clear that if the styrofoam cooler stays below freezing for a few hours that the contents freeze. The medicine stopped working for the 3 months I had that shipment, then when I received a new shipment this Spring I was much better. My insurance company wants me to buy it mail order. Any thoughts or ideas?
The data sheet does say that it shouldn't be frozen, I'm not exactly sure what will happen if it is frozen but it obviously won't work as well as expected. It's unfortunate that the Enbrel support line staff couldn't really give you the answers.
