Hi all,

Can someone with an Asacol Rx please look at their bottle and tell me when the Rx was filled versus when the pills from said bottle "expire" or "discard by xx date" is?

I have a new company (new health ins) filling my Rx and I don't recall the "discard by" date being so close to the fill date before. I'm wondering if I've been sent old pills.

thanks for your help.

Thanks guys, that's what I remember but this shipment expires in 9 months. The pills are going to be gone by then but just thought it was odd...
