« on: February 18, 2019, 04:34:06 AM »
Not sure about this.


The kind of meds we take......maybe too dicey to take expired ones?


 I believe the "world record" for this is 40!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! years.  It was a med the U.S. army was using.

Hello Mytamhuyet and welcome. I don't think that too many studies have been on medications that are past there "Best before date". I know letting them freeze or get too hot in the car can impact the medication. However I have no idea about using old meds. I would imagine that it varies from med to med. Take Care. paul m
