Thank you!So technically there may be nothing harmful with expired antibiotics. However, the antibiotic breaks down overtime and the concentration is going to be lower than it was originally. Because of this, it is better to have fresh antibiotic so they get the proper dosage and effectively treat the bacteria. You are less likely to have the bacteria infection go away if you use expired antibiotics. I would not recommend it.
