i’ve just taken 2 cocodamol and then realised that the expiration date was in 2016, will the drugs harm me or will they just not work?

  • no  deal … you  looked  at  the  exp-date  before  opening  the  bottle … you  chose  your  own  fate.

    It isn't harmful.

    It just isn't guaranteed to be effective after the expiration date.  Basically - it might not work as well as it would if it wasn't expired.

    Unlikely to have any negative effect.  As for their effect, the painkilling effect could be reduced depending where they have been stored.  I use paracetamol with a best before date of Feb 2008, they still work.
