most drugs remain safe and effective long after their expiration date

FDA tests show that most drugs remain safe and effective long after their expiration date, if kept in their original container.

This has a huge economic impact. For example, it costs the U.S. military about $100 million a year to replace outdated meds.

The FDA is testing military drug supplies and has found over 90% of the drugs to be safe and effective for many years past the expiration date...including the newer tetracycline products.
