Hello,

I am wondering if any other NYS pharmacists can comment on how long from the date of repackaging Unit dose Drugs are good for?

They are being dispensed at a retail pharmacy for patients. Wanted to see what is done in practice

Thank,
Collin

Not what your computer system automatically defaults to as 1 year from date of dispensing like some places do. Whichever date is more stringent

IL it's 1 year or 25% of the remainder of the package expiration date....although I admit I'm not sure if that's actual law or just JCAHO requirement (I just know what I'm supposed to do, not why I'm supposed to do it, haha)
