i guess this is the section closest to my question. i was wondering what the best way is to store the medication for it to last the longest. will it still have potency after a year? the pill bottle says to discard after a year, but was wondering if i put a silica gel pack to absord moisture if it would make the medication last longer.

I have very little k owledge on this subject, maybe donh or someone can help. I always thought the best way is to keep it out of sunlight and heat. I would keep it in rx bottle and maybe in kitchen. I alway avoid bathroom medicine cabinets due to moisture. Back in the day I would get my hands on very old morphine and dilaudid, sometimes 10 years old and it always worked fine. I wouldn't worry about the experation date to much. But again I could be way off base on this, just going by personal experience.
