Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi
Doctor :   here
User :   I wonder how long a pill is good for after the case is open
Doctor :   how can i help u ?
User :   particularly, it is majezik -- the pain killer. I have a head ache now and I found this in my laptop case, but the seal is a bit teared
User :   is it OK to use it ?
Doctor :   just see the Expiry date on the box
User :   I don't have the box with me
User :   just the film, where 5 tablets are
User :   and the seal is teared, i.e. it contacted air
Doctor :   if the expiry date is not available, then do not take it
User :   but I'm pretty sure the box should be relatively new, it shouldn't be expired.
User :   does it make any difference if the seal on the film is broken, i.e. it contacted air ?
Doctor :   if the box appears to be new , probably the exapiry date shd be atleast 2 yrs from now
User :   other than that, it cannot be expired
Doctor :   so you can take it without any effects
User :   yes, than no way it is expired.
User :   so the aluminium fail (seal) getting teared is no problem ?
Doctor :   u can take it
Doctor :   no its not a problem
User :   ok thank you.
Doctor :   u r welcome
User :   Good night, thanks again.
Doctor :   bye for now
