I was given a kenalog injection on 12/28/2012. When I got into my car I started reading the paperwork and discovered the shot they had given me was 6 months expired. What should I do?

If you had any concerns about the safety of expired meds, I think the following information will at least help put you at ease:

"According to a Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date."

With that said, I would still suggest expressing your concerns about the efficacy/legitimacy of their practice, since this could've been dangerous had it been tetracycline or some other medication.

Can you go back in their and request to speak with the doctor directly?
