Store reconstituted SOLU-CORTEF at room temperature (15 - 30°C) and protect from light. Use solution only if it is clear.  Discard unused solutions after 3 days.

In-house studies have shown reconstituted Solu-Cortef 50 mg/mL and 125 mg/mL to be physically and chemically stable after one month of freezing. Once thawed, the above guidelines should be followed for Solu-Cortef.

After reconstitution, SOLU-CORTEF can be diluted for intravenous infusion (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION, Intravenous infusion). Unused diluted solution should be discarded after 4 hours.

The Act-O-Vial is a single dose vial and once reconstituted solution is used, any remaining portion should be discarded.
