expiration date. Is it still effective AFTER the expiration date?
You should throw it away and get a new prescription if it is expired. Drugs, especially suspensions, expire because this is the amount of time that the preservatives can be relied upon to keep bacteria from overgrowth within the suspension. Pills can expire because the drug loses potency or starts to break down after this date.
