it was prescribed for my post-partum depression and i havent had the chance to get my new one filled. it says discard after july 2009. i was wondering if maybe it has weakened overtime, become more potent, or toxic. should i take it until i get my new script filled or just trash it?
It has become less potent, less effective and more toxic, just throw them away it has been 13 months, they are completely of no good use to you, flush them, you do not want to take any risks at this stage in your life.
I would not take them.
All the best,
you can do it Mellisab... put on those shoes and fill that script. Even doing that you will feel you accomplished something! And just think, in a few weeks, the meds may help you feel even more motivated and able to accomplish so much more! We are all pulling for you.
My best wishes to you,
Yes you can still take it. Medication is still good after the date on the bottle. When I worked at an animal emergency clinic, the veterinarian told me that expired meds are fine to take. Just not anything like 20 years old because then it is less effective.
