What I mean is suppose the Doc just wrote you a new script, but you still have 2 or 3 refills on the old script. How long can you keep the new script sitting in your drawer before it expires? I was under the impression it's 2 or 3 months. But I asked a pharmacist yesterday and he said 1 year. This is not my usual pharmacist who owns the store and I have extreme confidence in. I tend to think this man is wrong. Like I said, it's for Tegretol which is not a controlled substance. Anyone know?
