... actual shelf life, or do I need to toss them after the
I was told years ago by a pharmaceutical rep, drugs last a year after expiration date. Tetracycline is the only one I know of should not use and toss out. However, i would discard drugs such as Rx eye drops and Antibiotics. Cardiac related meds, use no more than 3 months after exp date. Topicals should not be a problem. Any meds that have changed color do not use, oral or topical. IV meds cannot be used when color of liquid have changed color or expired. I store all topicals in the frig to extend shelve life even after expiration. As always your doctor has the last and final word.
