    i'm fairly sure that expiration dates on most over the counter medicines are simply to tell you when they lose their effects, not that they go bad and will cause harm.

    I have a lot of experience with this because my packrat grandparents used to give me and my brother children's chewable painkillers and sleep aids that expired like YEARS before.
