Summary: 
The effects of external noise on lifetime of metastable oscillation mode observed in forced van der Pol oscillator are investigated to clarify the origin of destablization of the modes. The noise is found to suppress the stability of the mode when the noise is intense enough compared with the fluctuation inherent to the oscillator.
