    I don't drink the milk beyond the date on the jug, so I keep that rule of thumb.

    go and buy some fresh stuff.

    The medication should still be good.

    Thanks for the feed back, he started them on it the other day, and today they sound better. So the stuff must still be good.

    The use by date is a good rule of thumb, however some medications are still good for several months past expiration. Considering the fairly inexpensive cost, I'd get a new bottle after this bout of illness.
