It was prescribed for my Son in 2016 and he took it for about 3 months and I kept the capsules. He now needs to start again and we are not certain if they are still effective. Please advise
STEPPACH; YES; THIS WILL BE FINE JUST MAKE SURE THEY DID NOT GET HOT AND LEAK BUT THIS MEDICATION HAS A LONGER SHELF LIFE THAN THE COMPUTER PUTS ON IT. They will be as effective as when you got them from the pharmacy. And so you know unless there is a sticker that says keep Refrigerated never store any medication in the bathroom the best place is behind stuff in the kitchen Cabinet where it stays close to the same temp. and is in a darker place to get the longest shelf life out of it. Best of luck to you and no dought in my mind at all that it is fine to use it.
