Zolpidem - If I have some Ambien that was filled in 2008, is it still okay for me to take it?

Possibly, it will depend on the expiry date of the medicine. It should be on the label (often in very fine print). If you can not find it call your pharmacist - they should be able to give you a rough idea.

If the medicine has past its expiry date it is not safe to use. The safety and efficacy can not be guaranteed by the manufacturer.
