How should I store my Pulmozyme?

Pulmozyme should be stored unopened in the refrigerator. It should never be frozen. Pulmozyme is sealed in foil packets without preservatives, and the full single-use ampule dose must be used immediately after opening. Do not store an opened dose in the refrigerator for future use if opened accidentally, or double up on a dose to keep from wasting it. Do not use beyond the expiration date. It is also important to keep your Pulmozyme away from direct light, which may harm the medication. If the medication becomes cloudy or discolored, do not use it.
