How do you store Zepbound (Tirzepatide)?

Disclaimer: The content made available on The FORM Medical Weight Loss Blog represents the views and opinions of the authors and not those of other entities, such as the manufacturers of products mentioned therein.  

It is generally recommended to store your Zepbound™ prescription in the refrigerator (36⁰F-46⁰F) and keep it in the original box to protect it from the light. Some patients find the injection to be more comfortable if they first let the medication warm to room temperature before administration. If you do not have access to a refrigerator, it can be stored at room temperature (up to 86⁰F) for no more than 21 days, and it is not recommended to put it back in the refrigerator after storing at room temperature. Do not freeze Zepbound. If your Zepbound pen becomes frozen you should dispose of it and do not use it.
