Lupron question

My box of meds arrived this afternoon, and I noticed that the lupron was in the cold pack along with the follistim.  I'm confused, because the box says to keep at room temperature, but there's a sticker on the box that says to refrigerate it.   How do you store it? 

My DH was totally overwhelmed by it all and was surprised when I knew what everything was and in the order I was supposed to use it.  LOL, I guess that's typical though, men tend to only listen to things that pertain directly to them. :smileywink:

it can be stored at room temp.. they probably put it in ice just so it wouldn't get too hot while shipping..  I have kept mine in the fridge before but it isn't neccessary.   Good Luck with your cycle.

Thanks ladies. I may keep it in the fridge, but in a warmer part so it doesn't get too cold. Sure would be nice if the pharmacy and the manufacturer agreed on how to store it!

I was told during my fresh cycle to keep it in the refrigerator but that straight Lupron doesn't have to be refrigerated. Keeping it in the fridge just in case is probably just fine though. Mine should arrive tomorrow so this was very timely information for me too =)
