    I wasn't sure where exactly to post these links, but they are to articles to issues regarding shelf life and why drugs have expiration dates on them. They might be considered good companion articles to link with the one new one to help people decide on whether or not to keep using drugs beyond their expiration dates. Both articles did mention that some antibiotics show a decrease in efficacy after time and one specified tetracycline, which some might be using.

    :biggrin THANK YOU! Vicki.

    One thing to remember...if you're dispensing meds. (for a friend) from an amber bottle...wrap the syringe/tube in aluminum foil. This drug is sensitive to light. LOL...just a tidbit.
