I was prescribed Co-Codamol back in November 2014 for back pain and still have quite a few left as the doctor prescribed me 100 for some unknown reason. I kind of threw the box out so don't know if they are still in date or not? They are still in the blister packs unopened but would they still be usable?
Sam, This is a write-up in the L.A. times paper and both ingredients that are in what your talking about were in this study (They noted that the Shelf-Life Extension Program allows drugs in federal stockpiles to be retained for up to 278 months after their stated expiration date if tests show they are still potent. But some of the ingredients tested in this study remained good for 480 months – so far.(((( So I WOULD SAY THAT THEY WOULD BE FINE TO TAKE now this also depends on how you kept them stored. it's always a good idea to keep in a dry dark place but there should be no problem with them.
