    Question How important is the expiration date?

    Assuming you are using a brand that has an expiration date, would you feel comfortable using it withing a couple of months after expiration?

    Medications expire well before they are actually bad.
    Often a vial of test will remain good for years after the expiration date.
    I have a bunch of Asia pharma cyp I got from World pharma and they are expired 2/11
    Im using them currently and they are very good.
    I would expect them to remain good for use for quite some time if stored in a cool dark place.

    its fine.

    I would still use it 18 months after expiration.

    Maybe >10% decrease in potency, if that. Someone posted up something about expiration dates and potency. 2 yrs >= 10%

    One of the largest studies ever conducted that supports the above points about "expired drug" labeling was done by the US military 15 years ago, according to a feature story in the Wall Street Journal (March 29, 2000), reported by Laurie P. Cohen. The military was sitting on a $1 billion stockpile of drugs and facing the daunting process of destroying and replacing its supply every 2 to 3 years, so it began a testing program to see if it could extend the life of its inventory. The testing, conducted by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ultimately covered more than 100 drugs, prescription and over-the-counter. The results showed that about 90% of them were safe and effective as far as 15 years past their original expiration date...................Mr. Flaherty, a pharmacist at the FDA until his retirement in 1999. "It's not profitable for them to have products on a shelf for 10 years. They want turnover."

    The shelf life of medications are good for <4 years after exp. date. If the gear was good and looks good I would use it.

    Oil based are fine up to 5 years past expiration if stored at room temp out of direct sunlight.
