Often in a fridge: For a very long time until now, it is recommended to keep your Insulin vials in the refrigerator (36-40 degrees). Today, we have many Insulin types available in the convenient injection pens which can be kept at room temperature for up to 6 weeks! but all of them can be stored in the refrigerator, if you are not sure what Insulin you have. Consult your pharmacist or the manufacturer. Good luck.
