how many years can etodolac last
I have this prescription from 06\06\2011. do you think it is still effective? ## Hello, Steve! How are you? No, being that old, it is likely best to just dispose of it. It isn't that common, but there's also a risk that old nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories may irritate the stomach and liver more than usual. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?
