Brief Answer: Refer below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! No need to worry, but please look for any symptoms like nausea, vomiting and any uneasiness. If you observe these, you need to consult. Usually, expired Paracetamol will not be effective but should not cause any harmful effects. However, the chemical composition may be altered rarely and can do harm. No big clinical research studies information is available on this. Hope I have answered your query.
