How Should Sirolimus Be Stored?

Sirolimus tablets should be stored at room temperature, away from light. The oral solution should be stored in the refrigerator, protected from light. If needed, the oral solution can be stored at room temperature for up to 15 days. Once opened, the oral solution must be used within one month. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets.
 
Sirolimus oral solution may develop a slight haze when refrigerated. This is normal and not a cause for concern. If a haze develops, allow the liquid to come to room temperature and gently shake it until the haze disappears.
