... discard after 03/31/2010. Today is 04/30/2010. I am sick again and the doctor has prescribed it for me however none of th epharmacies have it in stock and will not get it over the weekend. I would like to use the old bottle until I get the new one on Monday. Do you think this is a reasonable risk or is it a complete no-no? Thanks for your help
In this case, to get you through until Monday when you will get a new bottle, it will be fine.
Once a medicine expires the drug company will no longer guarantee its safety and effectiveness... however these dates usually are "short" and have time after the expiry date where they are actually fine and safe to use... this is one of those situations where I would be happy to take an expired medicine.
