TOPIC: Drug Expiration

Drug Expiration 6 years 1 month ago #75

I came across this interesting article on "Do Medications really expire?" in "KEEMAT", the publication of Consumer Guidance Society of India. I am reproducing it below. (I hope I am not infringing on any copyright, but then I may be excused as it is a matter of public concern and interest.) There was a discussion over this earlier in Yahoo Groups if I remember right where luminaries like Dr Qureish Maskati expressed their disagreement with "Discard after one month" instructions on various eye drop bottles. I certainly feel that drug companies have a stake in maintaining that warning for obvious reasons.
What does the group say?
Attached two files, page 1 and page 2 of the article.
Also an article highlighting the fact that the majority of cases in consumer courts are either medical or builder related.
Food for thought. (Two platefuls for such of the doctors who are also builders :) :)
