This medication which is a generic for Vicodin doesn't get dangerous once it's past the expiration date, but it does lose effectiveness, so after 3 years, they aren't likely to do much in the way of pain relief.

Learn more Vicodin details here.

The best thing to do would be to dispose of them and see your doctor for a new prescription.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I used hydrocodone liquid form from 2009. How long is the expiration for that. Can't find the bottle now.

Not true.
The Military just did tests on the efficacy of drug like this, and they all lasted about 80 YEARS.
No kidding. Look that up.
If stored properly, the efficacy should be the exact same even after 10 years.
