Thank you for your question and welcome to


Most prescription medications have an expiration date on the prescription label. It may say "Discard after..."


However, according to John Hopkins Hospital, most medications are effective long after this expiration date if they have been stored properly. In order to be sure, you should speak with your pharmacist.


For more information:


Proper Storage of Prescription Medication


I hope this helps.
