What is Levitra’s expiration date? 

What is Levitra’s expiration date? 

Levitra usually comes with an expiration date of 24 months from the date of manufacturing. You can find the exact date on the packaging of your medication. If Levitra is dispensed in a prescription bottle, the expiry date is usually 1 year from the date at which the medication was dispensed.

If you have an expired Levitra, I don’t recommend using it. This is because Levitra may start to lose its efficacy after 24 months and it will not treat your erectile dysfunction (ED) properly. 

What are the possible dangers associated with the use of expired Levitra? 

The use of expired Levitra may lead to the following consequences: 

  • Therapeutic efficacy, as the expired medication eventually loses its potency and will most likely fail to relax the penile muscles. This leads to therapeutic failure and you will continue to suffer from ED.
  • It can trigger allergies in some people, like a mild rash.
  • Expired Levitra can cause gastrointestinal disturbances. 
  • It can mask the severity of your symptoms which could deprive you of proper treatment. 
  • Using expired Levitra with other medications can increase the risk of drug interactions.

What to do if you have taken expired Levitra? 

If you have taken expired Levitra, it will most likely not work. If the drug has recently expired, it may still work a little, but it will not be sufficient enough to manage your ED properly. However, a small number of people may experience some side effects.

If you have taken expired Levitra and you feel unwell, immediately seek medical attention. If you are concerned about your symptoms which most probably won’t get better by using expired Levitra, talk to your healthcare provider and get a new prescription instead of relying on an expired medication.
