Mother took metotrexate in shot form in september that the pharmisist gave her and the medicine had expired in may and she has not felt well in four weeks.

We don't know the effects of expired medicines. Manufacturers do not guarantee the efficacy and quality of expired medicines. Please make the pharmacy/pharmacist aware of this and also get your mum to see her doctor. Her symptoms may just be due to general ill health but please get her checked.
