It should have an expiration date on the bottle. If it is a multidose vial and it is opened, it should be kept in the fridge and then discarded after 30 days though, no matter what the expiration date is.

If it is unopened, then it is good until the expiration date on the label. There should be a lot number and expiration date on the side of the bottle, usually where the label seam is.
