No, Acetaminophen does not get dangerous after the expiration date, however, it may have lost potency, so it may not work as well as it did when it was new.


Too much, however, can be very dangerous, so it is not safe to try to take more of it, to achieve the same results.

Do you have any questions?

If acetamenophen has lost potency due to age, why is it dangerous to take more to get the same effect?

I had a doctor tell me yesterday NEVER to take expired Tylenol. Pharmacist said today also not to take expired aspirin or antibiotics. Other drugs amy/will lose potency.
