Hi Kiene - You didn't mention by how much time it was expired or how it was being stored??? All of that matters as to the efficacy of any med - expired or not. You can surely ruin ANY med if it isn't stored properly... But my doctor told me that you can take meds, which have expired as long as they were stored properly and some even refrigerated to help beyond the expiration date. Now, if it is one year old or older - get rid of it. All medicines have a shelf life... every packaged med you get has a stamped expiration date on it these days. All prescription medication is assumed good for one year if stored away from heat, sunlight and moisture.
