I grabbed the Tylenol for my wife yesterday and, as usual, checked the expiration date - May 2017. She took it anyway, seemed to work fine.
It seems to me that every OTC med- aspirin, cold meds, cough syrup, are always out of date when we need them. Usually by several years. We use them, of course, but eventually we end up buying new ones and tossing a bunch of the old stuff out. Maybe we are just lucky not to fall ill very often but it still seems like such a waste. Other than aspirin/Tylenol/ibuprofen I don’t think you can buy smaller sizes.
Are we alone with this monumental problem? Do you have a cutoff date for when you stop using out of date stuff?
