Hello to everyone
im actually not at home, and i have 3 bottles of novorapid penfill
but the problem is that they expire on 01/2010
i wanted to know if i still can use them as i do not have the regular access to medical care to where i am actually.
i stored the penfils in the fridge for more or less 1 year...
anyone can guide me.

From what I know the insulin is safe it's just less effective past it's expire date usually good for about 6 months past. Fresh is best but if it's all you have it's better then nothing.
I agree that it can be used but I would test frequently to see if it is necessary to take additional insulin in case it has lost some of its potency. the actual expiration may be the end of the month, I'm not sure.
