    Just been sorting my room out, and came across two boxes of Centrum Vitamin C tablets, but it states an expiry date of May 2009, and I was wondering how do expiry dates on tablets/medicines work..?

    Hi
    Expiry dates on medicines work the same as the ones on food packets. Basically after this date you shouldnt be taking them.
    Once this date has passed the tablets will start to disintegrate and will also not give you the benefits that they would have done if they were fresh and most importantly may make you ill.

    Hope this helps
