... opening and just found it in a drawer. The fluid is clear and I can replace the needle easily enough. Will this be OK to use? It feels such an expensive waste to throw it out!
Can I use my Saxenda if it’s been open for longer than a month? I mislaid the pen shortly after...

You should never use the pen over 30 days. It is no effective and not healthy. Even if you have medicine left over, throw it away.
The Saxenda website says to dispose of the pen/medicine after 30 days even if you haven't used it up, so I would get rid of it, especially since it's not been refrigerated.
