What will happen if I take an expired drug?

Q: I used cefotaxime injection and found out that it was expired. What are the complication?

A:The safety margin built into expiry dates is fairly wide so a difference of a few weeks or months even is unlikely in practice to make any difference. The longer the drug has expired the more likely it is to be less effective and potentially no longer sterile.
