If the sachets or packets are opened they are only good for that day and the contents should be used as soon as they are opened. If they are unused, even samples should have an expiration date listed. As a general rule of thumb, most medications are good for about 6 months to a year after they are dispensed but always look for an expiration date and follow that first. Look all over the packets for a date. Be sure to look carefully in the area of the crimping where each packet is sealed sometimes the exp. date may be pressed into the crimped area on the edges rather than printed on the packet. I'm not sure where they put the exp. date on this particular medicine. If there is no date and they are older than a year, throw them away.
