Methotrexate should be stored between 8-25 degrees, what advice is given of how to store in in this present heatwave if your home is above 25 degrees?

    Hi @littlepetal

    Thank you for posting on the forum

    ‘If room temperature is likely to be higher than 25°C, especially during this current hot spell (or if the patient goes abroad on holiday,) it is best to store Metoject in the refrigerator (2–8°C). The patient should remove the syringe from the refrigerator about 30 minutes prior to injection, to allow the solution to return to room temperature’ 

    If you have further concerns, please check with your rheumatology nurse or pharmacist.

    I hope this is of some help

    Best wishes
