My indomethacin 'expired' in 2014. My gout is flaring up. Can I still take it?

Probably OK: Drug expiration dates reflect the time of proved safety and effectiveness. In almost all cases, the drug remains potent and safe for much longer (often many years), if it hasn't been exposed to high heat for long periods (like a car's glove compartment in summer). It's always safest to use drugs before the experiation date, but most likely the expired indomethacin will work just fine. Read more
