Is cefprozil safe to use 1 year after expiration date? I have some left from my last sinus infection.

Not a good idea: Although most drugs may remain active even 2 yrs after the expiration date, it is not a good idea for you to treat yourself with an antibiotic prescribed for someone else. In addition, it is best to take a full course of the prescribed antibiotic and you would not have enough for another complete course if you only take the left-over.
