I get Novolin R from the VA and they keep sending it via the US mail service in a mail pouch and takes 3 or 4 days to arrive at my mail box. Is the insulin safe to use after being exposed to high heat? I do not understand why they mail it, in my mind they are stupid for not sending it in a a chilled container. Am I right about it needs to remain cold?
It is supposed to be refrigerated for storage but the FDA document states that: "A Novolin R PenFill cartridge and Novolin R InnoLet in use should not be refrigerated but should be kept as cool as possible (below 86°F [30°C]) and away from direct heat and light." source, drugs.com
