Liquids have a much shorter shelf life, because they tend to degrade faster than other forms of medications and they can also turn rancid, which could make you ill.

Thus, it would be best to just dispose of it.

Is there anything else I can help with?

it is fine sorry i didn't see this before. I have saved mined up to 4 yrs. & it worked.... I work for a chemist & he told me aspirin integrity stays intact 30 yrs. However this is NOT the formula for all drugs, but from personal exp. my cough med, stayed intact fine. Ever notice on all drugs now-a-days says expires in one year. what a miracle that everything goes bad in 12 months at the same time.

We have the same thing, 2 year old Ceratussin AC and hubby took it in the middle of the night not realizing it was "expired". It worked. Stopped his cough and no ill effects, so it should be fine.

I took some that expired in 2012, smelled and looked ok and it helped my cough. But can't recommend that for everyone. LoL, thinking being stored in dark med cabinet made a difference.

I took 2 teaspoons of Cheratussin AC Syrup which was 3 years, 6 months past its expiration date. Two hours later I had coughing spasms which kept me from breathing. I thought I would pass out.
