Rx Mail Order
Mar 6, 2005

My Rx drugs were classified as "maintenance" and MUST go under the mail order program per our insurance coverage with a 90 day supply per order. I will receive my first order in March. Norvir is one of my medications which I got a refill from my pharmacy every 30 days. The current expiration on the label is 30 days and must be refrigerated. I am confused. How can I get a 90 day supply if it expires in 30 days? What is the actual shelf life of Norvir if refrigerated vs. non-refrigerated?


Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your question.

Norvir stock bottles should be stored in the cold, but can remain at room temperature for a couple of weeks without problem. If you get 90 days at a time, just keep the stock in the refrigerator and store a week's pill supply at a time in your pill box.

Hope this helps, BY
