Do you need a special refrigerator for Humira?  It says you must store between 36 and 46 degrees.  My large fridge is always fluctuating and I have no way to know what the temp is.  Any suggestions?

We keep our fridge on the cold side, so I generally just store mine in the fridge door (where it is warmer) and keep a thermometer beside it because I'm paranoid.  I have never seen the temperature fall outside of the specified range.  I would recommend getting a thermometer and trying out a few places in the fridge (higher and closer to the door if you want it warmer, lower and closer to the back if you want it colder).  If you find your fridge temperature really does vary beyond that range over time, then maybe it's time for a new fridge anyway. :-)

hmm. It seems so easy to make a mistake and destroy the medication. Am I overreacting? Is it really complicated? Do I have to constantly check the temp?

I will be storing 3 months supply at a time since I am going through the patient assistance program.

I keep a thermometer in the fridge beside the humira.
My fridge is old but it seems to keep the same temp.

milk spoils above 45 degrees, so if your milk insnt routinely going bad you should be fine.. i just toss mine in the vegtable bin.
