Question: Vytorin

 tsf - Thu Apr 30, 2009 5:25 pm

I am taking vytorin. I don't know if any of it has expired as I have the medicine in a generic bottle. Is it still safe to take.

User avatar Hi there. It is still safe to take. It may or may not be as effective as it would be if it has actually expired, but even then there's some wiggle room for that. I wouldn't waste it, but would renew the prescription promptly when this is gone, and use it as directed.

Hope this helps.
