I am wondering about an old prescription I have. The only date on the bottle is 3/2/2012. Is it safe to take?

Hello, Smith1985! How are you?

Prescription tablets have an expiration date of one year from the date they were dispensed to you by your pharmacy, because that is when they are removed from the factory sealed container and are exposed to the elements that cause degradation.

After the expiration date, this medication does not get dangerous, but it does begin to lose effectiveness and will no longer work as well as when it was new. It would be best to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have some Naproxen 500 MG, oblong light-orange G 32 500 pills that says to discard on 10/21/2016, but I'm having menstrual cramps. Is it OK to take the pills even though they are 14 days past expiration?

The expiration date of my Naproxen was Feb of this year (2017). Can I still take them for my menstrual cramps?

I have an older prescription of naproxen dated 11/19/15. Can this naproxen be used today (1/29/18) just for slight discomfort on a knee I banged slightly against a dresser?
