Answer

Hi jcnovy03,

First, if there is any sign of discoloring or the medication being dried out it needs to be discarded. An expiration date is a guarantee from the manufacturer that the drug will stay chemically stable. Meaning up until its expiration date it is safe and when used properly, will work at its best. They must be stored in a cool, dark place, safely locked away from those who can't get to them ie, teens and children.

I've heard some people store medications in the freezer for a while without too much trouble....

Good luck

Nancy
