Probably: If may lose some potency when used way beyond the expiration date.

Flonase: The further Flonase is past it's expiration date, the less effective it is likely to be.

Yes: All medications have an expiration date. Typically 12 months but check to make sure. An albuterol inhaler does have a two year expiration date and other medications might vary. Check the bottle.

Not recommended: It's probably safe to use, depending on how old it is--however, if the medication is expired, i would recommend getting a new nose spray.
