Ghost or Anyone- Please Advise on Med Expiration

Postby Sunshine1576 » Mon Mar 28, 2011 9:13 pm

Ok my pharmacy is telling me that once my Follistim med is opened-- after 28 days it must be discarded. Yet my clinic is telling me as long as I have kept it refrigerated, (which I did), it will be okay to use through Oct. 2011. I have no insurance coverage so it would save me around $600, yet at the same time it would give me peace of mind to go ahead and order new med. Maybe I just answered my own question, but what are your thoughts? Sunshine1576

What I heard was closer to what your pharmacist said. I heard 30 days.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

Thanks Ghost and I did go ahead and order brand new meds... I thought it would be worth it just knowing I wouldn't be anaylzing "what if"...Always better to have that peace of mind! Sunshine1576
