What happens when medicines (i.e. ibuprofen or that cold stuff that dissolves in water) pass their expiration date?

Just curious! :)

Mostly they simply just become less effective. The only time you really have worry about medications going "bad: is when they are in a liquid form. So Syrups, eye drops etc should never be used after the expiration date :)

I think you should buy some new medicine. If i were you, I wouldn't use anything that's expiration date has expired, But follow Awenydd's advice.

When medicines pass their expiration date they don't add any significance in your body. The medicines cannot be used to cure any disease in your body since; they will be ineffective to the immune system.
