    Default TRAZODONE Question

    SO I use to be prescribed to Trazodone 100 mg. I stopped taking it just about a year ago. We'll I've been having problems every now and again sleeping. I still have the last bottle full of them. I filled them in Feb 2007. Are they still good cause I was trying to find something to help me sleep. I tried looking it up on the web but got different answers. Was just wondering if it would be bad to take a nighttime before I goto sleep seeing how I use to sleep wonderful when taking them. As a side not I have tried sleep aides but nothing seems to be helping. Thanks

    My bad I thought I hit the other link, sorry for posting in the wrong section

    I am only speaking from personal experience but I have never thrown a bottle of medication away simply due to age unless it was very old antibiotics. Regular scripts like trazodone are not going to be hurt after a year I don't think. I could never notice any problems at least. I'm sure there is a point where medications lose effectiveness, expire or what have you. But I think the pharmaceutical companies just put a date on the package to sell more. I really do. It's kind of like the deal with shampoo where it says ..." lather, rinse, repeat." I won't say I have never washed my hair twice, but I didn't do it because I was paying attention to the writing on the package. Sometimes these marketing people think we are totally stupid. Cracks me up.

    In general, drugs expiration date is 2-5 years from production date. This means that before expiration date, right conserved drugs can maintain at least 90% of their efficacy.
