Does hydrocodone cough syrup expire if you keep it in the fridge?

In brief: Yes

I would assume that it expires after the expiration date just to be safe.
Keeping it cold may prolong the activity but i would err on the side of safety. Once it expires it doesn't help much anyway. Get some new medication.
