Question
Is it safe to take Flagyl two years after the expiration date?

Answer
Hi Abe,
Normally I would never advice anyone to use an expired drug, but I a aware of  the cost of drugs in the US and other countries, I am also aware that Flagyl does not become toxic after expiry. So while  in this instance you  may use it, please check  your medcine cabinet and throw out all expired products.
All the best
