I didn't intentionally freeze my enbrel, but on my last shipment, it was during those snow storms and the enbrel got delays by several days and was holed up on one warehouse after another. I was afraid that it was going to be frozen, and it most likely was at some point. It wasn't when I finally got it, though. Enliven told me that if it looked funny, don't use it, but it looked fine.

Well Eliven told me that it was no good if it was frozen. i asked about the report and they said no study had been done on frozen Enbrel and they did not know if it would be any good because it is a biologic. I don't know I didn't through it out. It looks like their are little bubbles I will look at the new shipment and see if it looks the same.The insurance company said they would refil my prescription on Tuesday. Thanks El and Ducky.......

Hi Harley Diva,

I do recall Enliven services telling me not to use the enbrel if there lots of little bubble in it, so at least we both got consistent advice.  Glad to hear you're getting a new shipment.
