Eli Lilly is very specific about NOT doing this. I suggest you contact
them and ask. They are quite nice. If it did not actually freeze, just
got real cold, it is probably OK. I think they are worried about the
ingrediants separating if frozen or cold for a very long time and
screwing up the potentcy. I have a letter about it at work, I think it
may be covered in the package insert.
