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.
