    Default Tylenol Cold expired 2 years ago

    I just realized that I took Tylenol Cold Night Time (blue pills)that had expired 2 years ago. The expiry date on it was 08/06. So it's been over 2 years since it expired.
    It still worked for me, put me into sleep and just woke up and saw the package and got shocked to see the expiry date on it.
    Am I in big trouble by taking such old pills?
    I'd appreciate any insights.

    No you are going to be fine, just watch out to see if one of your fingers turn greenish or falls off... if that doesnt happen you will make it i promise

    No! My fingers just turned green and started falling off!!
    But I managed to super glue them so they're still together.

    lol. Yes I'm fine...but more worried about the potential issues that it might cause because my stomach is not feeling too well all day long. Hopefully it'll be ok by tomorrow. Still...a bit worried though.

    You will be fine.It is a good idea to get rid of all of your expired meds, vitamins etc.Read your warning labels carefully.Expired drugs can stop being effective,but rarely cause illness.
