Hi, I have some Valium and Klonopin (Rivotril) which are 2 1/2 and 4 years old respectively.
Do these medications become toxic with age? I thought I had read that Klonopin can become toxic to the kidneys when it is expired, but a pharmacist I asked wasn't sure if it will become toxic or not.
What's the general consensus on expired benzodiazepines?
Reason I ask is because I'm almost out of Xanax and it isn't working well enough to stop my night terrors (nocturnal panic attacks), so I was thinking of substituting either Valium or Klonopin for my nighttime Xanax dose.
Thanks very much in advance! :)
