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.

Avoid or reduce: dose of both or either, combination can cause CNS depression. Hydroxyzine stays in your system for a day or two, while methocarbamol stays only for few hours, good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications, take care
A 30-year-old member asked:

Is it ok to take robaxin (methocarbamol) & narco together ?

Dr. Howard Feinberg

Yes: These medications can be used together although there is a significant risk of constipation as well as difficulty with memory, concentration, and confusion. An important step is to explore why you need these medications. Robaxin (methocarbamol) and narco are symptom treatments. It is always better to get rid of the problem than to treat the symptoms alone.
