I have some diazepam in blisters I found in the back of my draw with an expiration of 2001 ,I tried them and I don't think they have lost much potency over 22 years ...They have been kept in a cool dark place so may be that helps ?
@פישר I think you deserve some kind of prize! 22 years is a DAMNED long time!!!

No no prize it just shows my age ,,LOL thanks
No, it shows that you are frugal. :ROFLMAO:
 
I guess it would really depend on the med but If we're talking pills have never had an issue with consuming year old items and believe there have been studies to back this up with a potential of maybe just maybe loss of potency.
 
The Military has done loads of studies on this subject.except for certain class of drugs most can last ten years or more if stored correctly to minimize loss of potentcy. I had some ten year old valium and 15 year old provigil that worked fine. Had some 15 year old viagra that also worked.
 
My stepdad gave me an oxycodone nearly 15 years ago. I had been on a plane for 6 hours, and my lower back and tailbone were hurting so badly I was in tears. I ended up not taking it because I hadn't eaten and was afraid I would get sick. The days clicked by, the pain gradually got better, and I forgot all about the pill. It stayed in the zippered pouch of my suitcase for nearly a decade and a half.

Last year, I broke my wrist (actually, crushed my wrist is more accurate). The pain was so excruciating, I felt like I would die before I got to the ER. I remembered the oxycodone. I took it, and it worked just fine.

FWIW.

I might have mentioned this before and probably someone else has above but I believe exp dates are mostly made up by big pharma so you'll just get more...if stored properly, meds will keep thier efficacy for a long time beyond supposed exp dates
 
@ Veejur I've mentioned it a few times. I imagine the US Navy was thinking the same as you. Since they did a study of their own, I imagine they buy alot of meds and didn't want to throw them away. They found most meds lasted on average 25 years, although I wouldn't mess with anything life saving like insulin or alergic reaction meds. Likewise meds designed to melt under the tongue have a different chemical compound and will go off much quicker. That study seems to be the gold standard and I imagine didn't make Big P too happy ???.
 
Pharmacy technician here...can confirm that the exp. dates are meant to show when the medicine is at its safest and most effective, but most medicines can be safely used years after they expire. The exceptions are liquid antibiotics, and some compounded meds (which will also have a "beyond use date" which you should actually pay attention to). And as others have mentioned, Tetracycline is toxic after it's expired.
 
I believe I echo the sentiment of most folks who replied on this thread. It is quite amazing to me how long most things I have tried remain good/ even full strength for a LONG time. I bet some meds may oxidize or deteriorate in some other fashion quicker than the benzos or PK's I refer too. I do try and do the shady, cool, dry area in basement. My pharmacist gives me all of the dessicant packets I need for free. At the processing plant at the last trout ranch I managed we had a commercial vac-pac machine. Instead of sucking the air out, It uses gas pressure in the chamber to force the air out of the pouch. That is why you can vac-pac liquids with these unlike the home units. Dry,cool, lack of air and moisture is perfect IMO. I have a bunch of Ap V's from the days when I abused them, and they are as good as the day I got them about 9-10 years ago. Have found that now and then I can combine with OTC sleep-aid and it works real well. Will only do rarely as I do not want to become dependent. I will stop this rant now before it is too late.

Completely agree especially after my experience last year
 
i’ve never had expired meds not work for me. of course if it was meds that i needed for a serious health problem, i wouldn’t want anything expired, but even products going back 25 years worked good as new for me.
This has been my experience too. I never throw out old meds for whatever reason. If ever they are needed again, they’ve always worked fine. I’m not recommending it, but that’s been my experience.

I always destroyed expired meds, because I was afraid to use them. Not anymore.
 
I think the key thing here is that they are stored in a relatively stable environment preferably dark and if you can put them in some sort Ziploc bag of course the drug companies want expired drugs so they can sell you more. If they are legitimate prescription drugs you should be good for a few years
 
All medication I've had has always worked just as well after the expiry. I'm sure there are some exceptions though where some lose potency so I would imagine it would depend on how reliant you are on the effect of the medication.
 
I've seen forums where people were taking the benzedrine tablets out of old WWII emergency rations and they didn't complain about much loss in potency
Chemical half life varies quite a bit but I'd wager most of the common meds are pretty shelf stable
 
My current asthma inhaler has an expiry date of Oct 2021, but is fine. I sort of over ordered a few years ago.
