    Hi William,

     

    Vicodin is a combination of Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen. You can read about Vicodin here in the drugs database. The instructions say to dispose of the medication upon the expiration date listed on the bottle. That being said, Vicodin is basically a stable medication that can possibly be used past the expiration date if it has been kept in a dry environment. The best person to ask would be your pharmacist. While online sites are great places for information, they can not take the place of a professional and really isn't your health worth it?

     

    Hope this helps. Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!

    Technically most Narcotic pain meds expire 1 yr from the date of Rx. BUT......

    More then likely (if stored properly) in original container, away from moisture at room temp. it may be good for much longer.   Wink
