Insulin Glulisine - Storage

How should I store Insulin Glulisine?

​Store unopened insulin in a refrigerator between 2 to 8 degrees Celsius. Do not freeze. Do not keep insulin in a hot place (e.g. in a hot, closed vehicle, on top of a television set) or expose it to heat or sunlight. Insulin that is exposed to direct sunlight for too long may give it a yellow-brown colour. Do not use the insulin if this happens.

Once the insulin is in use, it no longer has to be refrigerated, but should be thrown away after 4 weeks.

Keep this medication out of reach of children. Throw away all expired medicines.

How should I dispose of Insulin Glulisine safely?

​If used at home, you may throw this injection away along with the used needles, into a metal tin,  or glass jar or thick plastic container (e.g. detergent bottles) to prevent  any needle stick injury.
