I googled your : Question since no one was answering you . According to one person, their pharmacist said it simply would be less potent. They advised them to try and see if the patch seems to help. Don't put on more than 1 patch at a time. One person said it could lead to depressive symptoms, but had no scientific evidence for that prediction. That's what i found on google hope it helps. Ask another pharmacist.

No: Companies do not test expired samples so it may make you sick, lose their potency, or just not work at all. Better to be safe than sorry.
