Shelf Life of Atripla

Jun 10, 2010

I have several bottles of Atripla that I have had for 6 months. Are they still effective. What exactly is the shelf life of Atripla?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Provided that the medications were stored appropriately (not in an oven or on the dashboard of your car), the shelf life of medications is measured in years. There should be an expiration date on the bottle-- after this point, the stability of the medication might not be guaranteed.

I hope that this helps. BY
