Jos-based Pharmacist, Mrs. Rotkang Okunlola, don advise consumers to always check the expiry date for the body of drugs, beverages, packaged foods, and cosmetics, before they pay for them.
Okunlola talk this thing on Monday inside Jos, say most people no care to check expiry dates on items wey they buy, and that kind attitude dey risky.
She say all the drugs get unique formulations for treating specific diseases.
Manufacturers dey determine the length of time wey drug fit stay without say the formulation change; if we use the medication on within that time, e go work well.
When such drugs expire, most of the time, the chemical composition of the drugs go change after the expiry period, and so the product no safe anymore.
E mean say person wey take the drug fit cause katakata for himself.
