expiration?

diabetic tussin safety of a year old expiration? ## Hello, Pat! How are you? No, it has most likely gone bad by now. Liquid medications degrade much faster than other formulations and, if they sour, they may actually make you sick, if you take them once expired. The FDA classifies this as a cold remedy and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Benylin Expectorant

Hi. My wife's been having a cough from her 8th month of pregnancy. She delivered on July 3rd, 2013. However, the cough continues. Negative on a blood test to see if it is an allergy. What could be the possible reason & why does it take so long to recover from the cough? She was having Amydramine cough syrup. Today the Dr. prescribed Benylin Expectorant & we were also handed Diphelin by the pharmacist. Is it ok to have this? I'm a bit concerned as it's been over a month now with the cough.
