And if it is over a year old or more, is it safe to take. It does not smell nor look bad and it has been in a dark cabinet.
Can you use Benzonatate after the expiration date on the bottle?

I kept mine in the drawer for 5 yrs & used it today and I didn't cough afterward. I don't feel sick either. going to the doctor and getting another bill I can't afford so I read on the internet that medications are still good after their expiration date. ill take my chances.
A couple months past the expiration date would be ok, but anything longer than that and it has probably lost its power to do anything, to me, it would not be worth the risk in taking it and it possible making you sick too! The old adage, when in doubt, throw it out, really applies here!
