Possibly, it will depend on the expiry date of the medicine. It should be on the label (often in very fine print). If you can not find it call your pharmacist - they should be able to give you a rough idea.

If the medicine has past its expiry date it is not safe to use. The safety and efficacy can not be guaranteed by the manufacturer.
