Re: Is it ok to take old prescriptions?? Response needed ASAP
I read that it's a decongestant. You will be able to get the refill no problem since there is one on the prescription and the expiry date is stated. If it worked for me in the past, I wouldn't hesitate to refill it. Since a cold doesn't last for a year, he obviously gave you the option to use it again if the need arose.
There are side effects on that medication, make sure you know all of them.
If your chest doesn't start to clear within the week, you might have a secondary infection. Make sure you see your doc incase you need antibiotics.
And, of course...if you are in doubt, ask the pharmacist or call your doctor about the prescription.
I hope you get better soon,
It's all a matter of perspective!
