I live in upstate New York, I've tried two different pharmacies (an independent and a CVS) and I seem to run into issues with my Apidra dying about 10 days after opening a vial. It can't be my fridge as it happens even with the first vial I bring home from the pharmacy, which gets opened and set on my dresser.
This has been happening on and off since July, but it's gotten really bad since Christmas. I'm talking like 80% of the insulin I open lasts a week. Has anyone else seen this???
My last two bottles (different pharmacies, both not very effective after 6 or 7 days, and virtually dead by 10) are from lot numbers 40C413 (exp 7/2011) and 40C419 (exp 9/2011).
Anyone out there with those lot numbers, can you let me know if yours works? I suspect all the local pharmacies may get supplied from the same place....
