There is usually an expiry date printed somewhere on the pack. Otherwise I don't know.

Don't know, but your local pharmacist might be able to help you (when I wasn't sure about the liquid chlorphenamine I had, I asked my lovely local pharmacist and he checked the dates of all the stuff he had on the shelf).

No expiry date its a bottle no longer got leaflet.I think I'll go and get some more for her although looking at her this morning it looks like she'll need steroids again.

Just back from hospital as I got new tablets with no effect her eyelids where starting to swell. Dr thinks she might have Polymorphic light eruptions he has given her strong antihistamines and hydro-cortisone cream and is to stay out of the sun completely. I have also bought sunshades for the car never thought I'd have to buy them for a 15 year old
