Customer Question

The metformin I have in the house here at 11pm at night is 4 years old. Can I take it tonight to start before getting to the doctor in the morning?

Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

The general rule is that metformin is typically good for 2 years.

I wouldn't take any tonight especially if you'll be going in tomorrow morning for a new prescription.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
