You don't mention when the medication expired. Expired medicine losses effectiveness over time. If it is just expired then it should still help. I usually don't use over the counter medicine if it is more than 3 months after the expiration date. I find it doesn't help much at that point.

Hi i have used a number of things out of date and i can tell you it is safe but it does not work that well, it loses it's strength. Hope this helps
