Has anybody ever had this happen:
I froze my Humira pens!
My wife accidentally put my 2 remaining shots of Humira in the freezer along with the freezer packs! (from 6 pen starter kit)
We noticed this after about 2 hours and the liquid in the pens were frozen.
They have since thawed out and are clear looking.
However, the paperwork says not to freeze and to discard if frozen.
We called Humira and the Safety Dept. is calling us back on Monday. The nurse operator says this happens all the time. "not to worry".
We are worried they will run thru insurance again to replace the 2 pens and it will get denied. We can't afford the non-copay price.
Hope they just send us 2 replacement pens for free.... God knows the drug companies make enough money!
Would like to hear from anyone who has accidentally frozen their Humira pen, or has received a shipped pen in a frozen state.
