Is my 6-Month-Old Zyrtec D Safe to Take?


Asked by roberta

What Is The Shelf Life Of Zyrtec D? I Have An Rx Of It For 6 Mos. And Wonder If It Is Still Good?


Hi Roberta,

Thank you for your question. If the medication is still in the bottle from the pharmacy, there should be an expiration date on the label. Even if there's not, the medication should still be good after six months. Unopened in the original packaging, the medication is good for up to about three years, and opening the package shortens the shelf life, but not so much that it wouldn't be good after six months. I hope this helps!

Best of luck,
