Should Ozempic Be Frozen?

June 5, 2023

Ozempic medication must be stored at certain temperatures. If it is not stored as the manufacturer instructs, or if it is allowed to expire, the medication can become less effective and even unsafe. 

How should my Ozempic be stored?

The manufacturer of Ozempic recommends storing Ozempic in a refrigerator at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C). It can also be stored at room temperature, 59°F to 86°F (15°C to 30°C), for 30 days.

If your Ozempic pen is exposed to temperatures less than 36°F or more than 86°F, its quality will start to deterioriate and it will become less effective. If this happens, report it to your physician and replace the pen with a new one.

Can I store Ozempic (semaglutide) in the freezer?

No. If Ozempic freezes, the medication can break down and become ineffective. If your Ozempic is accidentally frozen, do not use it. Report this to your physician and replace the pen with a new one.
