Bottles do not expire until: 1 bot exp 8/2012, 1 exp 09/2013 & the others good until 2014. All are unopened except 1 bottle, the bot that exp 8/12. Excedrin is best for headache & other meds just do not work.
If it was recalled I wouldn't take a chance. I agree that it works but it's asking for trouble taking something that was recalled. Hope this helps.
I kept mine because the recall was only for broken tablets. From what I saw there wasn't any broken tablets in mine. If it had been for a more serious reason, I would trash them. But I have the same problem... Excedrine works and nothing else does. So, I still have mine till they expire.
I would go to the website listed by the other person that answered & check your lot #, & if it is in the recall do not take. That was put out by the FDA also. I can't even find generic excedrin right now, & there was a mixup that an opiate was in some of these recalled ones. Any recovering addict could take these & it would cause them problems. They don't put out these warnings for nothing. Just my thoughts... Mary
Perhaps a little good news for those of you that like your excedrin as much as I do. I emailed consumer services at the manufacturers about excedrin. They answered me and said that they're trying to start shipping it back out around mid-year. So, since it's June, that hopefully means we won't have to wait much longer before us excedrin junkies can get our fix! If you're truly desperate you can try ebay. Last time I noticed, sales of one bottle were anywhere from $50-$75 a bottle! I'm thinking that's just a little extreme, but hey, that's just me! For $75 a bottle, it better not only cure my headache, but clean my house, walk the dog and wipe my nose too!!
Mary, I don't remember exactly where you live, but if you have a Kroger (or one of their stores in other areas like Jay's, Aldi's, etc... ) they have a pretty comparable generic substitute for the excredrin called migraine relief. It's got the same main ingredients in it, in pretty comparable amounts, if I remember correctly. Perhaps this could help you until the real mccoy hits the shelves again. If you go to Kroger.com, there's a list of their affiliate stores at the bottom of the home page.
Hope this cheers some of you up!
If there was a "recall", then why take the chance by taking them. Life is full of problems, why add to them by taking something that maybe harmful to you. If you cannot get your money back, or get them exchanged some how, then I would properly dispose of them. If you want to play a real game of Russian Rullette, get a pistal. This way, if you loose, you will at least know the out-come. My point here is "don't take a chance", even if the pills are not broken. Things can get contaminated by being exposed to the others that have been tampered with-- It is just not worth it if you ask me.
If you obtained them during a recall... unless you like playing russian roulette ... i think it would be safer to discard those bottles..and buy new ones... smile
