Hello, Dom! How are you?

Medications tend to lose efficacy, once expired, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new.

As to the discharge, it depends what is causing it. This is classified by the FDA as an antibiotic, so it is not appropriate for all vaginal infections. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, stomach burning and cough.

Is there anything else I can help with?
