    Default Old antibiotics

    What is the danger of taking an old antibiotic (specifically an unopened pack of Zithromax which is 4 years old)?

    Antibiotics should only be taken as directed by a doctor, at the time they were prescribed.

    Misuse of antibiotics (ie taking antibiotics unnecessarily, not completing the prescribed course or saving old drugs for later) can lead to the problem of drug resistant bacteria and “superbugs” which will make infections harder to treat in the future.

    Don't do it. See your doctor.
