According to the lady at Franck's Compounding Pharmacy that I spoke with today, bimix does not require refrigeration of any kind.  Trimix does, although she said it would still work ok if out of refrigeration for a few hours.

Nerve-sparing, open prostate surgery November 13, 2007
Gleason score 9, PSA 14
Biopsy result - 9 of 12 sticks showed cancer
Despite high Gleason score, cancer was confined to the prostate
Possible post-surgery radiation therapy...decision likely in late April 2008, depending upon PSA at that time
Unrelated surgery January 2008 delayed incontinence recovery, which is now showing good signs of improvement (fraction of a pad a day as of March 2008)
Began using Viagra 3 times a week December 2007 to stimulate blood flow
Began using Osbon Erec-Aid Esteem manual pump for therapy mid-February 2008
Will probably begin using bimix injections in addition to Viagra and pump in May 2008

That's interesting.

I just went and checked my bottle of bi-mix and it said in big type "STORE IN REFRIGERATOR".

Maybe we can get a third opinion.

Just passing along what she told me....for better or worse....and I believe some here (JameC maybe???) posted recently that his no longer comes in a cold pack.
 
In any event, not pushing this as the gospel....just what the rep from Franck's told me on the phone today.

I have left my Trimix at room temperature for days and as long as it stays below 86 degrees, it is okay. The main reason for refrigeration is to lessen the danger of contamination. Same for the 3 month expiration date. I am still on my first 5 cc vial that I got last August. (I only use .02 - .03 cc per shot)

This is just my opinion gathered from experience...

Both of my bimix orders from Franck's came in regular mailers, the cold paks are no longer used evidently.  It's a long story, but I just used a .5ml syringe that had been out of the frig and in varying temps from 70 to 90 F for over two weeks and it worked just fine.

I refrigerate my bi-mix. The pharmacist told me it's not necessary, but it should prolong its life.
