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.

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.
