Added 27 Apr 2013:
when you take an antibiotic that's beyond the expiration date, is losing it's effectiveness the only risk?
Yes, all medications expire, once they expire they are no good.
You should not have any antibiotics sitting around waiting to expire if you took them like you are supposed to. You are supposed to take them until they are gone, not until you start feeling better.
