Can insulin be kept at room temperature?

Q: Why should I keep insulin below 8 degree centigrade? What happens if I keep it at room temperature for few hours? Why should I use a brand constantly?

A:The insulin vial/insulin pen, in use can be kept at room temperature i.e. at 24-25 degree centigrade till it finishes. The stock of insulin should be kept at 4-8 degree C, so that it is not spoilt. Insulin is a protein, it can get spoilt at higher temperature. You may use the same insulin for long time without any problem, all insulins of same type, of different companies are the same.
