My script is 2 mos. Expired and my doc has prescribed it again. I cant get my new script for 3 days and have one from a few mos ago.
Any medication that is expired will have a different affect on your body. It ranges from person to person. I would call and ask a pharmacist to ensure quality of the medicine. You never know what can go wrong if the medication has really bad side affects after expiration date.
Hope this helps!
Hey Carhead You should not take expired antibiotic penicillin,tetracy,doxy are some of the ones with the shortest shelf life and if it was given to you for something else you dont want to take it and get sick and if you see the doctor it might make something they give you resistent to what you have.CALL your doctor... these 2 antibiotics are closely related do not take it
