Have you consulted your doctor?

It really depends on what the other antibiotic is, it may help, but not if it's the wrong kind, or not strong enough.

What's the name of it?

Before I ask, please don't answer with "You should not take that" or "Why do you still have that" etc. I know all of this. All I want to know, is if I have Levofloxacin 500mg pills that expired 3 years ago, are they still safe to take. How much weaker will they be? I have been googling and can not find a suitable answer for shelf life vs expiration date. etc

Thank you

Fred, they don't get dangerous, but there are no specifics available on how much potency they lose.

The shelf life is actually relevant to when they are still in the original factory sealed container, where they are protected from heat, light and moisture.

The expiration is different, because that is when they are removed from that container and exposed to the elements, so they start to break down faster.

The reason for the warnings not to use them after they have expired is actually due to the fact that their loss of potency can make it easier to develop antibiotic resistance, since they are no longer at their full efficacy.

Are there any other questions or comments?
