My father recently told me that he has an old hydrocodone Rx from 1999 (about 20 pills left). He takes them every once in a while for back pain. My question is... are these meds too old for him to take? What are the dangers?
I must agree with myspine. Throw them out and have him talk to his doctor if he is having pain.
I have heard that some meds have a chemical change after time, don't know if hydro is one. Also, they are of course not as strong as when first prescribed like carol632 stated first.
