MAR 00. I know many drugs don't really "expire.' Is this one of them. Who knows... I may need them some day.
All meds have an expiry date, they vary from a year to 2-3 years depending upon the nature & composition of the med, it is generally not recommended to use meds which are almost 10 years expired. You could perhaps get a new scrip in case you need Atrovent, hope this helps?
The reason ALL drugs have an expiration date is due to efficacy issues. Beyond their dates, there are no stability studies to show whether or not the drug is useful. I would suggest this drug, 10 years beyond expiriation, is no good and I would not recommend taking.
