Expired vitamins: It is not wise to use any expired vitamins or medicines, as this is an unsafe practice, which could cause you harm.
Dr. Gary Sandler

Expired vitamins: Why take a chance, especially if you are pregnant. They put an expiration date on medications and vitamins for a reason. I once had a patient who took an expired dose of a pain medication and then was rushed to the hospital.
