Forteo refrigeration

I have an old refrigerator (which will be replaced within a couple of weeks). We have been away and I have discovered that the temperature has been above 50 degrees. I currently have a two month supply of Forteo in my refrigerator. Is it alright to use it? Once I get better refrigeration will it be OK to use it? If not, will the company replace it?

Re: Forteo refrigeration

What I understand is that if it's not refrigerated at the correct temperature then bacteria can grow. I would call Eli Lilly customer service line and see what they recommend.
