You should not take Amoxicillin after the expiration date. The drug does not work properly after the date. Call your pharmacist for more info.
Am I just supposed to accept this answer?? You know that people are going to keep searching til they find an answer that they somehow find believable. I like the answer that I saw on a previous website. It read something like this...
Amoxicillin may lose it's potency over time, but as proven by the military, many prescription drugs can be taken even a year or so after the expiration, and still have some affect on your ailment.
"Is doxycycline safe to take after expirtion date?" was question I had and was searching for an answer on internet. The answer is NO -- do not use this drug after expiration date. It can cause kidney damage according to 2 different websites. One site was doxycline for humans and the other for pets. Guess I'll toss out my cat's 2004 prescription for Doxycline 100mg. Good thing I read up on this before causing my pal yet another physical problem. LAM, New York

The expiration date is how long the medication is guaranteed to be potent for. You should be fine to take it past its exp date, just might not work as well.
No it isn't safe. Taking anything past the experation date is unsafe
Is it safe to take morphine pills 2 years after expiration date?
Is it safe, yes.. But will it be effective? The answer is no. Prescription drugs have an expiration date because after that date is when the active compounds are determined to be ineffective. Just like food, after the EXp date, it just isn't good any more.
The expiration date on most drugs tell you when the manufacturer is guaranteeing it will have the maximum potency. Taking a drug after the expiration date is taking a chance that it won't be as effective as a drug taken within the "guaranteed effective." So, in answer to your question, on the diphenhydramine, no one knows if it is safe. All you can say for sure, is the manufacturer will not guarantee the drug is 100% effective after the expiration date.
