Never mind.I just searched and found my answer!! I made a call to my GI and told him although I've been in remission for about 21months, I have a bad sold along with a sinus infection and after eating M&M's last weekend, I think there is some swelling going on there and I want to nip it in the bud. How long are they good for and how do you store them?

I am using the Generic Rowasa, and although this is my first time using it and I have nothing to compare it to, it does seem to be working for me. good luck!

There should be an expiration date on the box. The ones I just got 2 weeks ago have an expiration date of 12/2009, so they stay good for a little less than 2 years, I am guessing. You just store them at room temperature...don't have to do anything fancy.

Some members here said the generic didn't work as well as the Rowasa for them, but I've only used the generic, so I don't know. It has helped me.

Sorry to hear you have a sinus infection. Those suck big time.

Yes they do. I'm trying to let it run it's own course because last time I had one was over 2yrs ago and I took antibiotics for it and it caused me to flare and I don't want that to happen again since I've been in remission for 21months now. I used Rowasa
about 3yrs ago for about 10days, and they helped, but if I remember right I did just leave them out at room temp.
