    Don't tell me you are using any medication without checking the expiry date.

    i wouldnt be asking this in the first place if there was an expiry date inscibed on the medication. the medication is actually under the brand Madecassol, and i believe its composed of some sort of plant called Hydrocotyl, with a mixture of some other acids, which is used to heal wounds on skin.

    my medication had an absent expiry date at the back of the package. Therefore here i am asking this question.

    Unless cost is a problem, I'd get a new box (bottle, whatever) with a clear expiry date.

    If cost _is_ a problem, you may want to try and guess how old your box might be, then see at the pharmacist's (without buying, which will annoy him) how far the expiry date is for the same or similar drug being on sale today. But that is guesswork, really to be used as last resort.

    The answer to the original question, yes, drugs do go bad over time. Some slower, some faster.

    Well i see, im kind of lazy to go and get another medication, i think i will stick to a rough approximation on the expiry of the medication.

    Anyways thank you
