Hello and welcome to health care magic. Thanks for your query.

I would suggest you not to use the solution if it has changed the color.

If you had kept the mixed solution outside the refrigerator more than 24 hrs its better to discard and buy new one.

Usually the mixed suspension at room temperature 25C can be used for 2 days, and refrigerated i.e 5C can be used upto 10 days, ideally away from sunlight exposure.

Wish you all the best
