Flexeril Debate W/ My Sister

Okay. My sister suffers from GREAT muscle pain due to an injury she sustained in her leg years ago. Our grandmother recently died, and my sister inherited the house. She has found many different forms of pills, but the one that she's curious about is the bottle of Flexeril, seeing as how she's used it before in the past for her muscle spasms and such, but can't get any medication right now as she doesn't currently have insurance of any kind.

Here's the catch: I told her that from my understanding, you can generally take Flexeril anywhere from 5-15 years after its listed expiration date.

HOWEVER...... These pills were prescribed in 198-freaking-2.

She thinks they're totally safe to take, just probably less potent. I'm not so sure.

Does anyone have ANY advice or help to give that can settle this debate? If it's safe, great. But if it's not, I would like to know before she hauls off and pops any in her mouth.

Thank you for your time.

Hello, Lily! How are you and your sister?

Flexeril doesn't get dangerous, when its old and expired. However, it does lose potency, so after this long of a time period, they are most likely useless.

Additionally, it is illegal to take a medication that wasn't prescribed for you.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this muscle relaxant as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

Is there anything else I can help with?
