Iv got some naproxen 500 mg but date it 10/2017 Would they still be ok to take or not
Just wondering why your worried, 1/12/17 isn't expired as you still have 8 months till expiry. Go for it. Liss
My instinctive response (from someone who does take the occasional expired drug) is that taking your Naproxen that's only a little over 3 months beyond expiration date is very likely safe. If you want to be sure, ask your pharmacist, and consider also mentioning to him or her whether you've added or deleted any drugs you took since you dropped the Naproxen.
e5 were it me I would say they are 100% good. they have to buffer the dates on this medication because if they pulled one off the shelf even close to the ex-date and it was not full strength they would be in a lot of trouble. but I am very confident that this is just fine.
