So I accidentally forgot about my humira pen for maybe two hours. I panicked and took the shot anyway. I can't call the humira support because they are closed. I'm worried my shot will be ineffective. Anyone else encountered this problem?

If it was inside and the temperature was normal I wouldn't worry. Tests show it can be out longer at room temp and be ok.

You're right. I actually did get a call from a nurse and was advised to always call first to be sure, but that it was fine to inject.

My fridge broke once and I didn't know for almost a day because it was still quite cold for a while. I had 4 pens of humira in there and I panicked. I called the people who send it to me and they said it can be used if its been at room temperature for 24 hours but no longer. It's not ideal but you can still use it. Anything outside of that time should not be used.
