    Voltaren Rapid 25 tablets can be stored for 5 years, according to the New Zealand Medicines and Medical Devices Authority.
    I looked at the Voltaren information sheet on the Novartis' Web site, but couldn't find information about shelf-life.

    If you haven't filled the prescription, go back to your doctor and ask about it. If you have the pills sitting in a bottle in the bathroom, then the expiration should be on the label.

    If you're still not sure, you should ask your pharmacist. They tend to know that stuff really well -- they are there to help.

    the regular pharmacist that you use would have access to that information.  Although your rx is more that a year old many rx's have more than two years before they expire.  the ndc# and lot# on your drug label can be traced to the original bottle.
