Is Hydrovcodone 5/acetaminaphin Good?

Ann Says:

would hydrocodone 5/aceaminophen 500 mg tabs be good for a tension headache? If the bottle is sealed and the expiration date was April 8, 2008 would it probably still be a good pain reliever for a headache?

Hi Ann,

When it comes to drugs and medication I believe it is best to not take any chances with the past expiration date. They may still be ok to take given the sealed bottle, however I am not a pharmacist or MD, so I cannot say if it is safe for you to consume.

I would recommend contacting your local pharmacy or doctor to assess if the quality of the drug still remains.

If you have any more questions or comments to add, then please post back so I can further assist you.

As stupid as it sounds I take in some caffeine and a big shot of pickle juice. The pickle juice really works for me

ANN, David is right, call a pharmacist. A 5 year old rx I wouldn't take as some meds become toxic after expiration. Especially narcotics. I don't understand how the bottle is "sealed." Were they mailed to you? Usually rx's don't come in sealed packaging unless its a bubble pack or mailed....not always when mailed either. My sister has gotten some from a pharmacy where each individual pill was in a sealed pack, like some cold meds. Anyway, contact your pharmacist.
