when does prescription medicine expire

I take Hyzaar 100/12.5 nightly and I ran out of the prescription. I have a sample pack that my doctor gave me years ago which expired Oct. 2010.

However, you need to do so immediately, to avoid the rebound effect of missing medication. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## thank you very much for your response. I did throw them out before I even got the response and did get a new script from the doctor.
