Brief Answer:
Don’t worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello

After going through the medical query raised by you I can understand your concern and I would like to tell you that as the medication has recently expired so there won’t be any side-effects except for the fact that the potency of it will be reduced after the expiry date so you won’t get the adequate antihypertensive effect as expected.

I hope this will calm your worries.

Kind Regards
