What Happens If Ozempic Freezes


So devastated... finally got my script for my second lot of ozempic filled and then my fridge went on the fritz and froze it! The chemist said I can try it, that it might not be as effective but it will be safe... however the manufacturer definitely says no... I wonder if it's just because they don't want you to freeze it? Has anyone had theirs frozen and thawed? It is still nice and clear!

Did you end up trying it? I think mine froze too last night.

According to Ozempic.com, they boldly state on their website: "Do not freeze Ozempic. Do not use Ozempic if it has been frozen." [1]

While they don't specifically list what the potential ramifications may be, one can assume that it may heighten the risk of various adverse effects.

Other sources I came across note that "Ozempic can be used as long as the product has not been exposed to temperatures below 36°F or above 86°F". [2]

Given this information, I'd encourage people to proceed with caution and/or contact their doctor first before taking any just to be on the safe side.

Did you try the Ozempic? Mine was accidentally frozen so I’m trying to find out if someone has tried it after it has thawed.

How well did it work? Because I was told by a doctor not to use it. But I really don't want to get rid of it. It took a lot for me finally get this. Any suggestions?

Mine thawed clear. I just think it can possibly be less effective?? I just wanted to make sure it would not harm me.

Mine was placed in the freezer over night, a 3 month supply!! I'm devestated. I still took the dose though. It's my first experience with Ozempic and I can't get it replaced.

Fingers crossed
