CVS Caremark cooler

Hi all,

I've been on Stelara for 9 months now and it's working great after failing all other treatments. (Remicade, Methotrexate, Entyvio and Humira). I accidentally left it out in the cooler for a whole day before taking it was still very cool when I opened but the ice packs were a bit watery. Do you think this is ok?

Call Stelara company
It is only good for about 4 hours below fridge temp
Ds had a shipment one day late (UPS kept it an extra day )
They had to replace it

If the ice packs still had some iciness and the Stelara package itself was still refrigerator-cold to the touch then it should be okay.
 
I think you should be fine. I had a similar issue and they said the medication can be left out up to 8 hours in room temperature before there are any issues.
