How Long Does Viagra Last After Expiration?

Many drugs, including Viagra, become less effective after their expiration date due to breakdown of molecules that make up the active ingredient. You probably won’t experience problems other than lower effectiveness levels.

 

Not everyone gets through their prescriptions quickly, and they find themselves looking at the expiration date and wondering “Does this last?”

It does, sort of.  Viagra, like any drug, loses its effectiveness over time as the molecules in the drug break down.  This is why most pharmacies recommend taking medication within one year of prescription; after that point, the drug will be less effective.

However, there are no side effects that come from taking expired Viagra, except for the side effects the drug itself may cause.  There’s simply less of it to affect you, in fact, so those side effects may be milder.  You should still not take Viagra, even “expired” Viagra, if you have a severe reaction to a full dose.

Five years from manufacture, it will be completely inert.  Until then, it will simply have a weaker effect than a full, fresh dose, and the older the  drug, the weaker the effect will be.  If you’d like to extend the life of your Viagra, put it in a refrigerator; the cold will keep more of the drug active for longer, due to the cold preventing molecular breakdown.  Otherwise, you can take the Viagra: just don’t expect quite as much of a lift.
