It is true that one must be very cautious while having medicines and carefully examine the manufacturing and expiry dates.I just want to have information that whether medicine lose their potency or become poisonous after expiry.

I know a lot of people will throw out medication as soon as it reaches it's expiration date. I myself, I will take it even afterwards. I usually don't take that much medication, so I rarely finish my meds before they expire. I don't mind taking them after the date. Especially if it is vitamins or something to that extent. They may lose their potency, but not too much I don't think. Thanks for starting this discussion and allow me to take a moment to welcome you to myLot!!!
