Proper Storage of ENBREL
In general, ENBREL should be kept at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C; the standard temperature range of most refrigerators). However, if needed, the ENBREL syringe, autoinjector, and dose tray for the multi-use vial can be stored at room temperature between 68°F to 77°F (20°C to 25°C) for up to 14 days.
- Do NOT put ENBREL back in the refrigerator after it has reached room temperature
- Throw away ENBREL that has been stored at room temperature after 14 days
- Mixed ENBREL powder should be used right away, or can be kept in the refrigerator at 36°F to 46°F for up to 14 days
- Do NOT store ENBREL in extreme heat or cold. For example, avoid storing ENBREL in your vehicle's glove box or trunk
- Do NOT freeze ENBREL
- Do NOT shake ENBREL
- Keep ENBREL in the original carton to protect from light or physical damage
- Keep ENBREL and all medicines out of the reach of children
- Contact ENBREL Support™ to receive an ENBREL travel pack at no cost so you can easily take ENBREL with you. Call 1-888-4ENBREL (1-888-436-2735).
- You can carry ENBREL with you, wrapped in bubble wrap, placed in the travel cooler provided by ENBREL Support™, and packed with an ice refrigerant. Put a thermometer in the cooler and check it every few hours, adding ice as necessary to maintain a 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C) temperature.
- If necessary, the ENBREL syringe, autoinjector, and dose tray for the multi-use vial can be carried with you at room temperature (between 68°F to 77°F) for up to 14 days. However, it's important to remember that once ENBREL reaches room temperature, you cannot put it back in the refrigerator.
- Before traveling, check with your airline about the carry-on policy regarding syringes. Currently, you may carry needles and syringes on the airplane, provided you can show a medical need for them. For this reason, you may also wish to carry medical documentation to present to airport security. Notify security if you are carrying a sharps disposal container in your carry-on baggage.
- Make sure that your ENBREL is clearly labeled. Try to use the original carton with its original labels.
Be sure to stick to your regular treatment schedule, even when you are traveling.
