Once insulin is opened and stored between 2 to 8 degrees Celsius, its shelf life is limited to one month. Any usage beyond this period should be avoided, and the insulin should be discarded.

No, pls change the vial after opening within one month . They lose efficacy and can carry risk of infection.
