How critical is the storage temperature to Humira? My fridge is about 30 yrs old and it seems like the temp fluctuates sometimes. I put a thermometer in the fridge and it read 40 degrees so I put the Humira in and forgot about it. The next morning the thermometer read close to 32 degrees... Since then I turned the fridge temp up to the highest setting but it still hangs about like 35 degrees sometimes. I will ask the nurse when I go in to get injection training, but I was curious if anyone knows how critical the temp is to the drug. Thanks.

Freezing makes it useless. They say max temp is 8 celcius, but I'm not sure how critical that is.

It says on the box what temperature it must be stored at and how freezing it will destroy it basically...scary to have a fridge that fluctuates too much with it's temperature, and not just because of the Humira but for food safety as well.
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
