Am I wrong in assuming that medicine in capsules (i.e. mainly powdery form) lose their medicinal properties faster than the ones in solid forms (regular pills, capelets, etc.) once the expiration date has passed?
And what is the situation after the expiration date has come and gone? Are there any actual dangers to your health if, for example, you take medication X six months to a year after, or is it only basically that the product loses its effectiveness and becomes more or less useless the farther you are from that date?
I would guess that, as far as danger to your health is concerned, a prescription drug would potentially have more harmful effects than a simple aspirin.
