Is it okay to take my phentermine 37.5 perception from 2011? The discard expiration date was april 2013. Would it cause harm or sickness/illness

1 doctor agrees

In brief: It's ok

The older medicines when not opened yet will not give anymore side effect than a new medicine.
The problem would be that they may not have the same effectiveness when taken within a few weeks to months of the expiration date, meaning they don't spoil.
