  • I use Lantus Solostar which is a 300 unit pen. That is 13 days for me so two pens would be 26 days so the other three pens are not going to be used until after 28 days are waste

    It’s my understanding that they are good for 28 days at room temperature, but they didn’t spend 28 days at room temp, just a couple (?) days, then you popped them in the fridge. I am definitely not a pharmacist, but I think that couple days only shortened the normal, refrigerated shelf life by a few days.

    Again, your mileage may vary, not available in Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, etc. etc.

    Bud, not sure what “flavor” your insulin is, but Lantus, Humalog, Apidra, Novalog, Fiasp, Humulin N, Levemir, and Tresiba are all good for at least 28 days at room temp. I suspect that if you have one of these and got it into fridge as soon as you got it, you’ll have even more storage time.

    Still stinks about FedEx, though.
    I hate FedEx. I get insulin shipped by ExpressScripts which is the military pharmacy. It was sent via FedEx on Thursday for Friday delivery in a Styrofoam shipping container. Insulin has to be kept between 32and 36 degrees. The driver couldn't find my order on his phone fill out a refusal form so knowing it was going to mysteriously found in a ditch some time in the future, I took it in. I stuck a meat thermometer in

    FEDEX is One Sorry-Ass POS Company. They left a $1300.00 Ham Radio, in a Cardboard Box, 200 Feet from The Front Door, In Wet Grass, hidden behind the Street Light Stanchion. Left No Notice. Found it Three Days after "Delivery", after tracking the Item. Luckily, Radio was Double Boxed, and Within, it was in a Plastic Bag. Many other similar Tales with Wife's Diabetic Supplies, Drug Rxs and etc
    Congratulations are in order; I just found out I have another daughter, four grand children, and two great grand children that I knew nothing about. Apparently my hootch girl in Vietnam gave birth nine months after I left Vietnam. I am devastated. I wish I had known when my daughter was born, I would have gone after her. They are all in America now.
    We're sitting at the highest point of a very long ridge line. Everything drains away from the house, the shop and the three sheds. I am having gutters installed on the house and shop and will have them dump into water storage tanks with the excess being dumped to a pond I am trying to fill which is down hill from the property. We are at 1,200 feet altitude so way safe from water
