Consumed expired medicine by mistake.
Hello, I am 18 years old female. Today when I was having fever, cold, headache, and feeling low I took paracetamol but later I found out that those medicines were expired. There were two packets and I took paracetamol from the expired one. I am worried. I am the same. What will happen?
@hino Hello, Intake of expired medicines is equivalent to putting your body at risk. Firstly, the medicine could be ineffective and might elevate the pain instead of relieving it. Expired medicines might cause further complications in the body and could give rise to other problems or diseases. expired medicines can take a toll on your kidneys and livers. You can develop allergies or even have to deal with lower immunity in case the expired medicines adversely affect your metabolism. If you are feeling a slight difference or you witness any sort of discomfort like nauseous or swelling then immediately contact the healthcare provider. Thanks.
