how long is this antibiotic shelf life?
The expiration date is usually found on the foil (if you have it in aluminum foil wrap and the edge is still with you). If in a bottle, it should be on the label.
Generally, if you can't tell whether a drug is expired or not, the best thing is to flush it down the toilet unless this means of disposal is prohibited by law. Some drugs convert into poisonous substances when they deteriorate while some could attract growth of micro-organisms, e.g., fungus, which is very difficult and expensive to treat.
Hope this helps.
