Storing GLP1 medicines at home

Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) medicines are medicines like Saxenda®, Ozempic®, Wegovy®, Mounjaro®, Zepbound®, Compounded Semaglutide and Compounded Tirzepatide. 

How you store your GLP-1 medicine at home is critical for maintaining its effectiveness and safety. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Always store your unopened GLP-1 medicine in the refrigerator at 36-46°F (2-8°C). Exposing your GLP-1 medicine to direct sunlight or other heat sources can affect the medication’s potency.
  • Once opened, continue storing it in the fridge and make sure to use it within 30 days.
  • Keep your GLP-1 medicine out of reach of children and pets.
  • Check your GLP-1 medicine before use for any discoloration or unusual changes in appearance. If you notice anything out of the ordinary (such as a cloudy appearance), do not use the medication.
  • Please follow the specific disposal instructions provided by your pharmacy for medicine disposal.
