The bottle of Lomotil shows the prescription instructions and date issued but does not give a shelf life. How do you know when it is no longer safe to keep in your medicine cabinet?

With most meds they say to discard them a year after they were filled. You could call the pharmacy where they were filled. They should have a record of the expiration date on the bottle they took them from to fill your bottle but the general rule is to discard after a year.
