Gabapentin 300mg IG322
It might have lost a little strength but since it was sealed I'd give it a try.
NO - DO NOT OPEN AND USE. EXPIRATION DATES ARE PUT ON PILL BOTTLES FOR A REASON - THE PILLS HAVE EXPIRED. THROW THEM AWAY. GABAPENTIN is a potent anti-seizure drug with a loading dose. You cannot just dump an expired gabapentin pill into your body and expect it to work without some danger! Call your pharmacist if you don't believe me!!!
They should be fine. My doctor told me that prescriptions last 10 years.
Their is a reason that drugs have an expiration date (and I don't believe your
doctor, stating they are good for 10 years~that's the most dangerous thing
I've ever heard.) The chemical reaction in drugs changes as the expiration
date has passed and may make you ill. Just as meat, pork, bread have
expiration dates *among many other things* the meats only last so long in
the freezer and if defrosted should be cooked immediately - bread grows
stale and mold forms on outdated breads, don't flirt around with medications.
Throw them away if they have expired.
