Hi Kiene - You didn't mention by how much time it was expired or how it was being stored??? All of that matters as to the efficacy of any med - expired or not. You can surely ruin ANY med if it isn't stored properly... But my doctor told me that you can take meds, which have expired as long as they were stored properly and some even refrigerated to help beyond the expiration date. Now, if it is one year old or older - get rid of it. All medicines have a shelf life... every packaged med you get has a stamped expiration date on it these days. All prescription medication is assumed good for one year if stored away from heat, sunlight and moisture.
For 2 days now I have been suffering from an extremely painful toothache while waiting for antibiotics to take control of the infection. I am taking Tramadol that expired 2 years ago to control my pain. It has been stored for over 3 years at room temperature. It is relieving my pain beautifully without any side effects. I am uninsured and cannot afford medications nor a doctor's bill so I am very grateful that I kept the expired Tramadol for without it I would not able to function enough to write this testimony. If you are not poor and desperate and can afford the cost of acquiring fresh medication then I am very happy for you.
