Quetiapine Shelf-life

Barry Says:


I have recently been prescribed quetapine for sleeplessness-- 50 mg per night. It is functioning perfectly. I get 8 hours of sleep and don't wake up feeling drugged. My wife has approximately 100 pills (200mg) which are from an outdated prescription ("discard after 5/11"). What is the shelf life of quetiapine?
Besides the possible diminished potency of 1/4 of 200mg per night, are there any other issues with my usage? I have used that dosage (1/4 of her old 200mg pills) a couple of times and experience no difference in effect. Anything wrong with continuing?

Hello, Barry! How are you?

From what I've been able to find via the FDA, this isn't one that gets dangerous once it's expired, but it does start to lose potency. Thus, it would really be best to just dispose of it and obtain a new supply. However, you could check with your doctor, they may okay your taking it.

This medication is listed as being an atypical antipsychotic that's used to treat various mental health disorders and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, somnolence and weight gain.

Is there anything else I can help with?
