Insulin vials and cartridges are typically recommended to be used within a month of opening, but studies suggest their efficacy can extend beyond that timeframe, especially when stored between 2 to 8 degrees Celsius. So, maintaining proper temperature is crucial for prolonging their usability beyond the recommended duration.

You can use it after 1 month also
