RUSSELL Says:


My plavix expired in jan 2017. It's never been opened. Pharmacist says drugs slowly use their effectiveness after expiration... And I know my plavix did not go bad at 12:00 am feb 1, 2017. How's about a real answer for using the plavix 2 or 3 months after expiration? Could it be dangerous? If it is 60% of its normal strength that would be fine with me... but I don't want to take a poison pill either.

No, they do not become toxic once expired, they just start to slowly lose efficacy, thus 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, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising.

Is there anything else I can help with?
