Someone help me understand this...
The expiration on all of my medications is one year from the date it was dispensed.
When I think of expiration dates I think of it like this... If I open a container of yogurt at work the expiration is 7 days. So say that today is Friday Nov 25, that means the expiration would be Thursday Dec 1 (we always do one day back to be safe). So say I scooped up some yogurt today from that container and gave it to a customer. The expiration on that customers yogurt would be Dec 1. Well say 2 days from now I gave some yogurt from the same container to another customer... it would still expire December 1 because it was from the same container.
Do pharmacy employees date the bottles in the back once they are opened? How do I know if I am getting old medication?
I am sorry if this does not make sense... blame the meds (haha).
