Thread: Expired Melatonin

  1. #1

    Default Expired Melatonin

    I haven't been having an adiquite amount of sleep lately(probabbly a 5 hour maximum a night for the past month). Its starting to catch up to me. I get stomach aches and colds weekly. So, as opposed to medicine as I am... and with much motivation from my girlfriend, I marched to my cabinet to get my sleeping suppliment i used to take.

    To my dismay , it was 6 months expired. Its called melatonin and its natural. I have a question... can expired melatonin hurt me? If the side effects are minor I just might take it. But i dont want to get sick sick... so does anyone have an experience?

    Medicine stories?
    Sick stories?

    What do you think I should do?

    thanks guys <3

    I don't think it's a good idea to take expired medication.
    Can't you buy anymore?

    I didn't know you need a prescription. I'd go to a doctor at your convenience, and see what he says.

    6 months really isn't that old. You may want to research it, but generally things only decrease in efficacy. It's not like it instantly goes bad on the expiration date.

    When I was much younger I had really severe asthma. During my teen years, it would flair up on occasion, but not that often. Sometimes it had been years since I had a problem, and I had to grab an inhaler that was several years expired. I never had any problems, and it still seemed to work okay.

    Of course, it's been a good number of years since I had any real asthma symptoms. If I had a problem now I'd be kind of screwed haha.

    Well, Its Pretty Strong Stuff, Knocks You Out For 13 Hours If You Take 2, And "Groggy" After, As My Mum Puts It. 1 Has The Same Effect, But Your Not Really "Groggy" After.

    So Yes, Its Not Stuff You Can Just Go And Buy From A Pharmacy. At Least, Not Mine.


    "Bio-Melatonin, 3mg Tablets"

    Sorry. I didn't know Melatonin was powerful enough to do that.

    Why "Sorry" I'm Just Informing You...? Its Not Exactly Like I'm Telling You Off For Saying To Buy More?
