When expired?: Depends on how long ago it expired and the conditions in which it was kept. The expiration date includes for most medication an extra years worth of safety (not true for many drugs, particularly injectables). I would not fret if were a year expired.

No: It will create oxidative stress in body - will cause damage to liver, kidney, skin.
