Hi,

I was going to say good morning - but I just noticed you are in the UK....

Well actually expiration dates really are a manufacturing necessity - meaning they can not sell them after that date - but pills like this usually STILL are good for at least another 2 to 5 years after the expiration date - so honestly YOU do not need to worry about this - and you will be 'OK" and you did not mess up anything.

You are welcome.

Well you can have wine on Lupron - there are NO interactions with this - lupron is just an anti-estrogen - and since you are not yet pregnant - there is no affect.
