How should I store water for injection?

Water for injection should be stored at room temperature, which is defined as 68 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit (20 to 25 degrees Celsius). Keep water for injection in a place where it is not exposed to temperatures higher than 150 degrees Fahrenheit (66 degrees Celsius). Brief periods of exposure at 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) have found to have no effect on the product, but prolonged periods of heat exposure may damage it. Do not freeze this product. Avoid damage to the container, including tears or holes in the seal.

After puncturing the container, use it within four hours and discard it after that time has passed.
