Expired Hyoscyamine prescription, is it safe?

I Have Severe Ulcer Pain And have Taken Hyoscyamine Sublingual Tabs With Good Results. I have meds But The Prescription Is Expired From 2007. Is It Safe To Take Now? ## According to 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.

Symax-SR0.375MG

I was wondering if this medication is used for the treatment of urinary track infection? And is it ok to take this medication if the expiration date is past. The expiration date was 2/16/05. Would this be safe to take and what would be the dangers of taking an expired Rx? ## yes you can take the med, the expiration date just indicates that the medication is loosing its potency. but alway contact your pc ## Symax is listed as containing Hyoscyamine, which is used to treat gastrointestinal problems, by slowing the action of the GI tract. It will not do anything to treat a bacterial infection, such as a UTI. Once expired, medications also tend to lose potency, and may not work as well as they did, when new, so it is best to dispose of them, and see your doctor. Typical side effects of Syma...

Oblong green pill 255

What is a long dark green pill that says 255 on it? ## Closest match I could find is LL 255 Green capsule shaped pill which is hyoscyamine .375 mg extended release. This pill is used for IBS, Crohn's, and incontinence. The active ingredient (hyoscyamine) is sometimes used for anesthesia or premedication for endoscopy/radiology. Not sure if it's the same as what you're asking about. If there is no LL on it, it may be a pill manufactured in another country.

Use of Hyospasmol during pregnancy

Side effects during first trimester of pregnancy? ## Hi Dee, From what I could gather, it is recommended that you keep away from using Hyospasmol (Hyoscyamine) syrup during pregnancy. Reason being is that possible dangers to the fetus have been accounted (at least in animal studies so far as I know). Because of this I would encourage you to discuss this with your physician prior to use, or if you are preparing to get pregnant. Often times in situations where the mother is pregnant and has to take a medication, it may come down to weighing out the risks versus benefits. I hope this info helps! ## I am 14 weeks and 6 days pregnant. Today got sharp pain in my stomach just below my navel. Pain comes and goes. Had consultation with my doctor via telephone as she's in another town. Had u/...
