Medication expired


#1

I am waiting for prior authorization to go through for Invega from my doctor. The doctor gave me samples to hold me until I get the medication from the pharmacy. I just noticed that one of the sample bottles is expired. Do you think it would hurt me to take it?


#2

I don’t think so, but if you can get fresh medications instead of that you should. You should only take that if you have no other medications to replace them.


#3

Call the pharmacist to see if it`s ok to take.

We had the same thing, pd said it won’t hurt, it will lose potency but not within several months of the exp date. we used it and it worked fine.
