ENBREL can now be stored at room temperature
Are you or a member of your family taking ENBREL?
ENBREL is available in 3 preparations and your Rheumatology team will have provided you with advice with regard to the product.
However we can advise that:
Enbrel can only be stored at room temperature for up to 4 weeks and special conditions apply. Please discuss this with your rheumatologist or rheumatology nurse.
Wherever possible ENBREL should be refrigerated at between 2°C and 8° C.
However, in cases where refrigeration is not available – for example when travelling – ENBREL can be stored at room temperature.
- ENBREL Auto-injector and Pre-filled syringe can now be stored at room temperature (Maximum 25° C) for up to 4 weeks.
- Once stored at room temperature ENBREL must be used within 4 weeks, even if it is put back into the refrigerator.
- If you do transfer ENBREL to room temperature, it is recommended that you take note of the date it was taken out of the refrigeration, as well as the date it should be used by.
ENBREL should be protected from temperature extremes, light and sources of heat or humidity.
