Do medications really expire? Common sense and decades of
cheapskate frugal-Ramsey living, has proven to us that most expiration dates can safely be stretched. Drugs do not all of a sudden quit working on the stroke of midnight, they don't become dangerous the day they go "stale."
I've had a hard time believing how stubborn my fever is being. I don't often get fevers. Because of my thyroid condition my normal temp are 1 - 1.5 degrees lower than "normal average" - regardless of my levothryoxin dosage. This means I can be SURE I'm feverish and I'm not. I sure wish we'd understood this when I was a kid ::snort:: ANYWAY - this week my fevers have been 100.2 which I imagine is about what 101.6 would feel like to the rest of you. I don't usually take meds, but I wasn't loving this feeling. I've been taking Tylenol around the clock while bemoaning the fate of my Uncle Bill - determined not to take enough to make me deathly ill..... and it's helped "a bit" - but I still have a fever.
Oy vey. It may have not lost all potency at the stroke of midnight November 30, 2006....but by the stroke of midnight July 30, 2014 - it's lost some umph! ::snort:: I can't figure out HOW we have this bottle. I threw out or gave away all medicines when we left Japan and this was dated well before that....but there you have it.
I have a bottle of Aleve (expires 2015) and I took a pill or two.....
So thankful for boys who went in to help with PCOC....and friends who will carry on just fine this a.m.....and a friend who will bring the boys home so they don't have to stay in until 8:00 p.m. Much for which to be thankful!
Psssttttt.....I found comfort in the solidarity of being sick at the same time as the girls.....connected across the miles. LOL
Living all of life before the face of God...
