    Default Expired Meds Questions

    Hi everyone. First off, I'm super happy to have found this site--seems to be some well informed folks here. I have some questions about expired medications. Let me say first that I am currently on methadone, but I'm sick of that monkey on my back, and so is my wallet. I'm quitting this week (tapering to an end)--and nervous. I read about the "Thomas Recipe"--and was intrigued. As for the first ingredient-Valium; I have about 20 of them, blue 10mgs-but they are expired. Does anyone know if they still might do the trick? What about expired Trazodone (similar to Zoloft, according to insurance company)? I also have a ********************load of expired Citalopram (Celexa is the name brand, I do believe). Will any of these help me in the detox process? I have all these left over meds because I was afraid to continue taking them when I started the methadone. Everyone knows that benzos are a nono with methadone--and I figured that antidepressants couldn't be much safer. One more thing--The mineral supplement listed in the recipe, it calls for zinc, phosphorus, magnesium,copper, and potassium, maybe something else. Would a fulvic mineral supplement suffice? It has all the aforementioned supplements plus about fifty extra. Did I get the right thing? I'm not a real homeopathic expert--at all. I went in there with the recipe and said, "I need this stuff, please". Now I have the mineral supplement, some B-6 vitamins, potassium gluconate, L-Tyrosine, Immodium, and a whole bunch of expired meds that may or may not help me. Am I ready to detox or what?

    Good luck with that, Methadone is the hardest drug in the world to kick, this site may help you.

    Expired meds are usually still good for quite a long time, the antibiotics go bad, but most other drugs are still good for years.
