Hello, Steph! How are you?

Under normal storage conditions, they can only be guaranteed to be effective for one year from the date they were dispensed to you. After that, they being to lose effectiveness, though there have been no studies done to determine the percentages of efficacy lost after that.

Once they are expired, it is best to dispose of them and see your doctor for a new prescription.

This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

Is there anything else I can help with?
