Does Wegovy Need To Be Refrigerated?
Yes, it is recommended to keep Wegovy® in the refrigerator between 36℉-46℉ until its expiration date. Wegovy should never be frozen. If needed, it can be stored at 46℉-86℉ with the pen cap on for a maximum of 28 days. Note that some people find allowing the refrigerated pen to warm up to room temperature (approx 30 minutes) reduces discomfort when giving the injection. If you are traveling and may be in warmer temperatures, you may want to bring a portable cooler and avoid packing Wegovy in luggage where it might be exposed to higher temperatures.
More information on pen care and storage is available here.
