Myrbetriq (mirabegron) does not have a specified shelf life other than the expiration date printed on each individual bottle.
However, Europe's electronic Medicines Compendium (eMC) notes that the European version of Myrbetriq (which contains the same active ingredient and is manufactured by the same company) can be stored for six months after first opening.
While it may be tempting to use your expired supply of Myrbetriq rather than purchasing a whole new bottle, it's never a good idea to take expired medication of any kind.
As stated by Ilisa Bernstein, an executive of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), "Once the expiration date has passed there is no guarantee that the medicine will be safe and effective."
That's because each medication's expiration date represents the date until which it can be guaranteed to be safe and effective. As a result, using expired medicine is risky and can harm your health, the FDA says.
So if you take expired Myrbetriq, you may experience fewer or weaker benefits, and may even experience adverse health effects.
The expiration date isn't the only factor affecting Myrbetriq's safety and quality. To make sure that your supply of Myrbetriq remains safe, effective and pure for the duration of its shelf life, it's important to store it properly.
According to the manufacturer's specifications, the ideal storage temperature for Myrbetriq is 77°F (25°C). This falls under the definition of room temperature (68°–77°F) as per the United States Pharmacopeia (USP).
To maximize Myrbetriq's shelf life, it’s wise to follow general medication storage guidelines. According to MedlinePlus, a website operated by the U.S. National Library of Medicine:
Know that heat, air, light and moisture can damage your medication.
Store medicines in a cool, dry place, like a dresser drawer, storage box or shelf away from any heat sources.
Don't store your medicine in the bathroom cabinet — the steam and heat from showers and bath can damage it over time.
If you have an expired supply of Myrbetriq that you need to dispose of, be sure to dispose of it properly:
