Can i take pepto bismol that expired in april
Obviously, people take expired medications and nothing seems to happen. You can ask your pharmacist about Pepto Bismol since it's OTC. But as a PHYSICIAN I would be likely considered on the verge of ethical standards violation if I were ever condone or recommend that a patient take a medication which has expired. Therefore, in answer to your question I would have to vote NOT to take it.
