I am in a lot of pain and been trying to clear out old medicine to see if I have any pain relievers and found my tramadol but it expired August 29 of 2016. Is it still safe to take and is it still effective? Thank you
Tina; as long as it is prescribed for you and if you look good at the label the chance are that it was filled 6 months to one year from that ex. Date. many pharmacies don't really put the exact date on the bottle they put a date 6 months from the fill date. And Tramadol does have a long shelf life so if it was mine I would feel good about taking it. But if in dought call your doctor and see if you can get a fresh bottle. but really that would be a waste of money you're going to get the same thing. just remember to take it exactly as prescribed on the bottle. no more!!!
Personally, if it were mine, I'd probably take it if I needed it. That's about 7 months past exp date so there is a chance it has lost some strength.
