Ask your pharmacist. It is different depending on the level of control and maybe even state to state. Some are good for 90 days and some are good 6 months to a year, so it just depends, but you can call the pharmacy and tell them what the name of the drug is and when the Rx was written and they can tell you over the phone usually.
