Dr. Lohit K MD

No, Since the expiry date is over you can't take it. The chance of adverse effect is more. Regards

Dr. Kaushal Bhavsar MD

Yes it is safe. Make sure it is not expired.

Dr. Diptanshu Das MD

Anything beyong expiry date is like beyond warranty. No doctor can suggest you to take it although there is doubt if anything will go wrong.
