Some one told me they took some oxycodone dated 2004 and thought they had helped the pain more than the ones just filled.
Is it true or not??
No, they lose potency over time as they get old. There are a lot of reasons why a dose may seem stronger than others mainly due to how much you ate recently as well as other variables. So chances are they just felt it was stronger for another reason because meds dont get stronger over time. Also I guess another possibility is an example like Oxycontin where it was recently changed to a new version that doesnt work near as well. So if you had the old formula, even though it may be outdated, it might still be stronger due to the med being stronger to begin with.
