Can You Take Expired Drugs?

Mar 29, 2021 by

It happens to all of us – we all have experienced finding expired medicine in our cabinets. But when the time comes where you are looking for that certain medicine only to find it expired, should you still take it?

Be sure to consult your doctor or pharmacist for your concerns over expired drugs. We linked a video below with some research information that scientists have found, especially about how dangerous (or not) expired medicine can be, but it should not be taken as advice.

Since there are many medications available to everyone, the result of them expiring do not end up being the same. Some can expire toxic, some can become useless, and some can still work as intended. Expiring toxic is rare, but if it is for an emergency, taking a useless drug can still be equally dangerous. So, if you’re unsure, be sure to consult your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
