Should be fine. Unless they were left in the car or extreme heat. But room temp is ok. I have never had an issue.

They should be fine. I have failed to refrigerate and the insulins worked without any problems....Lantus & Humalog are what I use as well.

No worries, just put it back in the fridge. Room temperature is not the devil, extended periods in high heat is what creates problems.

The insulin will last for a month outside the fridge

I knew that, but I just opened two vials and so I didn't want to use these as well....I was hoping I didn't now have to use them, since they weren't refrigerated for so long...
