Updated
RUSSELL Says:

Can I use expired Crestor also known as Rosuvastatin after the expiration date? Maybe 2 or 4 months after expiration? Does it become toxic or just lose effectiveness?

They just begin to lose efficacy, so it would be best to dispose of them and obtain a new supply.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and joint/muscle aches.

Is there anything else I can help with?
