    No, it should not be refrigerated. You could ask the pharmacy if it's still usable if it's accidentally been refrigerated. I believe it can precipitate.

    At my facilities it is labeled "do NOT refrigerate."

    Intravenous Medications, Mosby - indicate DO NOT refrigerate, will precipitate.

    Never refrigerated...in fact it specifically says "Do NOT refrigerate"

    If you've pulled it out of the fridge, I'm guessing someone put it in there mistakenly.

    I've seen that happen; our HUCs unload the dummy and will put any piggyback in the fridge, regardless of the label.
