The Use Of Cough Medicine?
, I have a cough syrup medicine that has been opened, I opened it for the first time in 6 months ago, is it still worth drinking?
Hello Kintan! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In general, the drug in the form of syrup will maintain its contents even if it has been opened if stored properly, in accordance with the instructions on the package (generally recommended to be stored in cool and dry conditions, for example in the refrigerator). If stored properly, syrup usually can last for 1-2 years. You can pay attention to the writing again on the packaging. Also pay attention to the expiration date of the cough medicine. You should avoid cough medicines that have expired because they may not be effective anymore in dealing with coughs that you experience. If the cough persists after you take cough medicine and get more rest, immediately come to the doctor for further examination. Do not forget to increase drinking water and foods with balanced nutrition.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
