T Dolo 650 Expiry

Can anyone help me find out the expiration date of my dolo 650. The batch number is DOAD0558. Thank you. ## Hi biju, Unfortunately I am unsure of the batch number of T Dolo 650.

They may still be ok to take after 1 year is up, but they will lose their potency. Some expired medications can actually be very dangerous. Sorry I couldn't be of more help, do you have any more questions? ## Please tell me the exp...
