I'm a newbie, so please forgive me if this is a dumb question.
I will be taking an 8-hr flight followed by a one week trip in Europe, and I'm confused about Byetta storage temps and times.
If the Byetta pen can be stored at "room temp", is it safe to assume that I can simply keep the pen in my carry-on bag without usung a small cooler and ice pack for the long flight?
During our trip I have confirmed with each hotel that there will be a refrigerated mini-bar in each room, so I plan to keep the Byetta pen in my pocket during the day, and in the mini-bar over night. Will this plan work?

You should be fine. I do not pack my byetta on ice when I travel. Worst case scenario, place a zip lock back in case you need to ask the flight attendant for some ice if you feel temps are to high. The stuff is good until the temp reaches 77 degrees.
