    Default Hi All been a long time have a question about your LDN and expiration date

    How long does LDN last, I have a large bottle and it expired last month but hate to throw it out. I seem to remember someone told me they last one year, but when I called the pharma they said 6 months. Any one take theirs past the expiration date? Thanks so much.

    I could swear that Skips used to give it a year, but 6 mos exp is now on my bottle. Hmmmmmm. I'm taking some expired ones right now (exp in nov 2011).....working like a charm, I think..
    Love, Sally

    I don't know about LDN specifically but I did find this:

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...ryId=127908554

    It's an article "Finding a Drug's Real Expiration Date" that appeared in 2010.

    This is a question on expiration dates in general. Whenever I get a prescription filled they always but on expiration date one year to the day on the container. Is there anyway to gauge what the real expiration date is? No one gives drugs out in their original container from the drug company.

    newone, the article I gave a link to in my earlier post says that unless the drug is for a life-threatening condition (nitroglycerin for a heart condition, for instance) or is an EpiPen for asthma, you can probably use it for at least a year past the expiration date the pharmacy has put on the label.
