Hi, I can't be 100% sure but I really don't believe it changes it's chemical compound at all over time.-K

It's in tablet form seems like only capsules would be delicate and subject to chance. It stays on pharmacy shelves for years if not sold.

Usually all meds have an expiry date, the expiry date is ascertained from the date of manufacture, & is mandatory to be mentioned on the label of the med.

Meds usually lose potency when they are have expired.
