Generally speaking it is safe to take expired medication. However, it should be noted that the concentration of active ingredient in the medication is likely to be reduced. For certain drugs (anti-seizure medications, antibiotics, others), this may be dangerous. In the case of ultracet, the expired medication will likely be less effective, though not dangerous. Because there is no way to quantify the degree to which the medication has decomposed, do not take additional tablets in an effort to achieve a "full dose." That would be dangerous.
