Uncertain: In general, it is recommended that medications not be used after expiration date. With that said, there is a big difference between being expired for 5 days versus 5 years. Your pharmacist should be able to provide more information.

The pharmacist will always say not to use it because of liability reasons. I have already had this discussion with them
