 I posted earlier about taking something for constipation while pregnant, I am 7 weeks pregnant, Well my OB  finally called me back and said it was fine to take stool softeners, Well I just noticed the date on the box of Colace, it said it expired 04/2010...not that long ago, Should I take it anyways?? I didn't just buy it from the store or anything, it was some I already had from awhile back...

I would say it's fine. Try it. I would imagine the worst that is going to happen is that it has lost some of it's strength, but it JUST expired, so it should be fine, it's only a guideline.

If anything, the effect has lessened... it hasn't gotten dangerous, by any means. Go ahead and take them.
