So I bought Bayer Woman’s Once a Day Prenatal vitamins in October. I meant to take them every day (45 pills total) but I guess I was bad and that didn’t happen. Since I’ve tested positive I am taking them religiously and eating tons of veggies and fruits. The expiration is Nov 2012. I counted the pills and I have 31 left.
– Do pills normall expire the very next month? Or did I just get an old bottle?
– Is it okay for me to finish off the pills in early Dec? As they won’t be that far after their expiration date- and expiration date for a lot of things is really a “sell by” date…

When I worked in a pharmacy, we would pull the soon-to-expire bottles a month or so early, so you definitely just got an old bottle. I’m not sure about vitamins, but my doctor has always told me that I can use most pill medicines for months after their expiration date. Vitamins start losing their potency after a certain amount of time, though but I am not sure how long, especially since it was only opened recently.
