How Should This Medication Be Stored?

Unopened liraglutide pens should be stored in the refrigerator, not frozen. Once you start using a pen, you may keep it in the refrigerator or at room temperature. Either way, the pen is good for only 30 days, after which time the pen must be discarded. Do not store the pen with a needle attached, as this increases the chance of leakage and contamination.
