Can Fiber Pills Really Expire?

Since an episode of constipation a couple of weeks ago that made for a horrific BM, I've been religiously taking my Fiber Choice pills. I just happened to notice that a bottle I've had for a while expired back in October of 2006. Can fiber pills really lose efficacy the way pain killers and other drugs can? Just curious.

Re: Can Fiber Pills Really Expire?

Fiber Choice's active ingredient is Inulin that is made out of a natural chicory root. Since it is a natrual fiber substance, I am sure it can degrade wit time and become ineffective.

So, YES it probably will not work effectively after it's experation Date.
