Arleen Methocarbamol does not die right at the date the companys have to make sure that it is 100% if the dea came in and tested it or any drug but just what this one is made of the only thing that would happen is it well not work.But any stomach upset stop and get fresh ones from your doctor,we dispenced these for many years when they did not even have expire dates on them. many years ago I would say they ares safe but in a pinch you really should get some fresh ones if your having problems again just so the doctor know if no other reason Chuck1957 medically retired pharmacy technician Cpht.

Here are some concerns: A) Where was the medication kept? Temperature and humidity can destroy the efficacy of medications. B) Taking drugs without a current diagnosis and current script can set you up for failing a drug test and you shouldn't have any of these left. C) To keep your home safe, it is best to properly dispose of expired medications such as this. D) One may not be enough anymore but two could throw you for a loop.

Technically no, you should never take expired medication wether it's a month or a year past due. But would it kill you, probably not.
