Balacet 325/Butalbital APAP

These were precribed to me but I noticed the bottle expiration date is 10/2008. I have almost full bottles so I haven't thrown them out. Can I consider these safe? My husband says yes.

There is a reason for expiration dates.  The potency of the medication is not guaranteed after the expiration date.  Any pharmacist will tell you the same.

Thx for the reply. It was a weekend and I couldn't call my doc, but never thought to call a pharmacist.
