    This is a dilemma many people face in some way or another. After that, said Hall-who admitted to using the odd expired Tylenol-the key point is to know whether the drug works in an emergency and is effective. For legal and liability reasons, manufacturers will not make recommendations about the stability of drugs past the original expiration date. Who Should Report an Error? Instead, for more than 30 years, it has pulled some medicines and tested their quality.

    The risk is related to how effective the medication is. Taking them after their expiration dates could cause a serious health risk or consequence because the medications are not as effective.He says the high price of drugs and shortages make it time to re-examine drug expiration dates in the commercial market.

    Nope. Not at all. The expiration date on solid dosage forms is largely arbitrary. US government has done studies on expiration dates because VA and military.When storing medicine in a kitchen cabinet make sure that it is away from hot appliances and the sink due to changing temperatures and humidity, which can affect the medicine.

    It's true the effectiveness of a drug may decrease over time, but much of the original potency still remains even a decade after the expiration date.The findings surprised both researchers: A dozen of the 14 compounds were still as potent as they were when they were manufactured, some at almost percent of their labeled concentrations.

    Most were 30 to 40 years past their expiration dates — possibly toxic, and advising patients that it was OK to take expired drugs.A rare exception to this may be tetracycline, but the report on this is controversial among researchers.

    Actually, it's the date up until which the drug manufacturer can guarantee that the medicine is fully potent and safe to take based on product.The age of the drugs might have been bizarre, but the question the researchers wanted to answer wasn't.

    What should I tell my health care provider before I take this medicine? Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.Replace expired medications to be sure you are using the most up-to-date product with the most up-to-date instructions for use.

    Since you last purchased the product, new dosing instructions or warnings may be advised; the strength may have changed to reduce the risk of errors; a new dosing device may be available to help measure doses more accurately; the product may be packaged in a new container more child-resistant than an older version of the drug; and so on.

    That's what happened in June, when the FDA posted extended expiration dates from Pfizer for batches of its injectable atropine, dextrose, epinephrine and sodium bicarbonate.

    Testing showed 24 of the 40 expired devices contained at least 90 percent of their stated amount of epinephrine, enough to be considered as potent as when they were made.

    These are from emergency kits that are rarely used, which means they often expire.

    Once the original container is opened, either by the patient or the health care provider who will dispense the drug, that original expiration date on the container can no longer be relied upon.

    Excluding nitroglycerin, insulin, and liquid antibiotics, most medications are as long-lasting as the ones tested by the military.

    Medical authorities state if expired medicine is safe to take, even those that expired years ago.

    In all actuality, the stability of the drug may be much longer, but no one tests it.

    Though the government requires pharmacies to throw away expired drugs, it doesn't always follow these instructions itself.

    The dates on drug labels are simply the point up to which the Food and Drug Administration and pharmaceutical companies guarantee their effectiveness, typically at two or three years.

    A drug take-back program, if available, is the preferred way to dispose of expired, unwanted, or unused medicine.
