Silvadene - how long after the expiration date can the SSD be used if properly stored?

After expiration date is the SSD cream still effective or are there adverse reactions?

Once a medicine has past its expiry date the manufacturers can no longer guarantee its safety or efficacy.
You are best to throw the cream away and get a new prescription from your doctor if you need more.

That is correct but silvadene will last about one month past its experation date I have had several burns and now keep it on hand and according to a pharmacist it is usually good for about 1 month after but no longer. Hope this info helps some, marjorie zych
