Menopur newbie - refrigeration

My big box of drugs has arrived today, including Menopur which I know needs to be refrigerated.
The only problem is the Menopur boxes are huge and my fridge is tiny. I've had a look in the boxes and it looks as though there are 18 empty syringes as well as a separate set of vials and syringes containing the Menopur.
Please can anyone confirm whether the 18 syringes are definitely empty, so that I can refrigerate only the smaller part of the pack?
They look empty, but the plungers aren't pushed all the way down so they could possibly contain something.
I thought about ringing the clinic but they won't ring back for hours so hopefully someone here knows the answer
Thanks
Rosa

Hmmm I had menopur but I didn't have to keep mine in the fridge. Maybe mine was different tho as I had separate empty needles and then I had via,s which contained water or powder. Hope someone else comes along with more answers.xxx

Mine is a big box containing 2 big syringes full of liquid, a vial of powder and an extra needle tip bit which are all in their own packet, with 18 empty (?) needles as well.

I've just used menopur (powders) and it didn't needs to be in the fridge. My trigger shot (ovitrelle) did need to be in the fridge though.

Hey ther, I have been on menopur for 4 cycles and always powder vials which I used 3per evening, I had to mix this up myself using one water vial, none of which required to be in the fridge, I had seperate syringes and lots of needles of different sizes, one for drawing up and one for injecting. Is it def menopur. I also used cetrotide which came in a similar way. Ovitrelle did however require to be in fridge and is pre filled syringe, last cycle it was a pen. Only use ovitrelle once in a cycle though. I would speak to your clinic Hunni as it can all be a bit daunting and they will hopefully sort you out. Good luck x x x

Thanks everyone. It's crazy how much different advice we're all given for the same drugs.
I thought I'd better ring the clinic - better to be safe than sorry.
They said the Menopur vials and full syringes have to be in the fridge - and the other ones are empty as I thought.
Thanks girls x
