A good bit of the time meds have expired (a date when "SEALED") after it's date it becomes shall we say weaker. (someone please expound on this) Opened (seal broken) is totally different. But, be it way back in Jan. I wouldn't take the chance. Because your ear is to sensitive & next to your brain. Answered by Toshiko Blan 2 years ago.
Don't use an expired ear drug as it could have lost potency or be contaminated with bacteria. You might want to see an ENT specialist instead of your family doc in case it's something serious. For now, take Tylenol or ibuprofen, stay away from aspirin, though. Vosol is a hydrocortisone steroidal preparation so you were treated for an inflammatory process of some kind.

Acetasol Hc Answered by Ronda Westergaard 2 years ago.
go ahead and use it. most meds are good long beyond their expiration dates, which are put on there to be super-cautious. if these are drops I suggest heating it A TINY BIT in the microwave before putting drops in ear. lie on your side while applying and stay down for a couple of minutes so it doesn't all drain out immediately. then put a bit of cotton in there to soak up the stuff and keep it in contact with your ear canal. this also serves to keep your ear warm. many ear troubles are simple viruses or allergies and nothing to worry about.
