Arformoterol tartrate should be stored under refrigeration, although it can be stored at room temperature for up to six weeks if necessary (after six weeks, you must discard it). Either way, keep the vials in their original foil packages until just before use.
If, for some reason, you open a foil pouch but do not use the medication, return the vial to the pouch and store in the fridge. If you open a vial but cannot use it right away, you must discard the vial.
Keep arformoterol tartrate and all medications out of the reach of children.
