How Long Is The Shelf Life Of Voltaren? I Have A Prescription That Is 1 1/2 Yrs. Old. It Is Okay?

Answer

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.
