I took 10ml of liquid amoxicillin today. Original fill date was 12/17/17 and use by date was 12/27/17. My hands started itching immediately and within the hour my face, ears and neck were bright red and my entire body was itching. Could I have developed an allergic reaction or did this happen because I used after the "use by date"?

It sounds like you might have developed an allergic reaction. Medications used after the Use By Date are not guaranteed to be as effective as before the date.

When a medication has been mixed with water when you buy it from the pharmacy, it is less potent and effective when used after the Use By Date than other medication usually are.

The information BL provided is correct. Liquids, or creams always tend to degrade much faster than solid forms of any given medication.

The redness, and itching are typical allergic symptoms, according to FDA warnings. You could also experience swelling, and trouble breathing. Whenever someone experiences such symptoms, they should seek medical attention immediately.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?
