I found my old prescription for trazodone 50 mg but it was filled in 2009 and the actual prescription expired in 2011 is it still safe to take them or should I just throw it away?
Can I still take trazodone 50 mg if it expired in 2011?

Looks like this question was asked in 2013. For what it's worth, I personally would not take any meditation two years past the manufacturers expiration date. There's a lot of variables besides length of time. One would be if it was found loose or in a bottle. Heat/cold, humidity.. Etc. Why chance it?
Your prescription is still good for several months at least. Some experts even say years if it's been kept cool, dry, and out of direct light.
PS, most medications don't go "bad" but they may lose some potency after an extended period of time.
Can I take trazodone 50 mg it says use before 11/08/22 so I believe it’s expired my question is how long after expired day can you take your pills
Hello keekee1327. I would discard. Most all perscriptions are discarded a year after being filled. Reason being that the chemical substances are through time, potency diminished. Is it safe? I would say yes. Effective, not as likely. Regards pledge
