Armalyn    Do drugs expire?

Yes, drugs do expire.

This is a commonly asked question. Drug manufacturers apply an expiry date to a product to guarantee its effectiveness. Like milk, medicine can go bad. Prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs do not last forever. After the expiry date, the active ingredient in the medication can change in chemical nature and lose its therapeutic effect and may even become toxic.
