Once the med has expired it has no efficacy, it needs to be destroyed.
The other answer is complete garbage! This guy must work for a pharmacy!
All drugs can be used past their expiration date. Period. There is no drug in the world that magically goes bad the day after the expiration date. Most drugs last for years after, with only a light potency loss.
Storage conditions effect shelf life greatly. Store in a cool dry place for best results.
