Self administers of Romiplostim....do you store the entire box in the fridge or just the 2 vials in a light proof container?

No, I take it all apart and store the vials in the top thingy inside the door. And keep all the additional bits in a drawer. So much packaging waste too.

I put the boxes in the fridge, but if you are short on space you could do what JJ does. Boxes are small, so not an issue for me.

Thank you I shall do the same. My fridge isn't the biggest, the boxes take up a lot of room. So much wastage it's unbelievable. Be much more sensible to dispense the components separately.

Maybe you have a different packaging to UK. Boxes are 17.5cmx17.5cmx4cm containing everything required for a single injection packed in plastic plus instruction leaflets in 3 different languages.

Oh wow, your boxes are much bigger. Mine are 6x5x4cm. It's only the Nplate vial with instructions. For me, the sterile water, syringes etc are all separate and don't really have packaging. Taking yours apart makes complete sense.
