Have a demerol perscription from many years ago. Is it still good?
Ive found most of the time with pain meds, they just get weaker over time. Ive taken plenty of old ones and didnt get any adverse reactions, it just didnt work as well. Although thats not saying it couldnt happen. Im sure some meds could make you sick if they are expired. Also a big part of a pill's condition after aging is how it was kept. If it was in a cool, dry, and dark place, it will last way longer than if it was just sitting out or especially if it was in a car with temps getting way up in the 100+ degree range. Sunlight, temp, and humidity affect medications a lot.
