How can I tell if my P-amino salicylic is still good to use?

Your P-aminosalicylic acid is no longer good to use if the medicine has turned brown or purple. Also, if the package looks swollen, it is not effective and no longer good to use. Make sure you keep it in a cool place away from direct sunlight so it will not change color. Do not expose it to water or moisture. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about safely storing and using your P-aminosalicylic acid.
