If your talking about a cabinet in the bathroom the chances are it would not be any good and you should call your doctor and get a fresh order. Please don't keep any medication in the bathroom Now if it is in a different room look at the fill date and then the expire date if it is one year then it is not the true expiration date on the bottle it is a computer overide. And the chance are it is good for at least another 6 months. Good so if in dought call your doctors office and get a fresh order.
