    Thats strange, usually they last a few years..

    But maybe you have a certain type of asthma inhaler..?

    If it expired in december, don't use it.

    Theres a reason for the date.

    peace

    I dont think the inhaler will give you chest tightness, but its never good to take expired medication. Its not as effective after the expiry date. What type of inhaler did u get??

    It wont cause tightness in yr chest, but if its for asthma, then you might find that you will experience tightness due to not getting enough of the actual active ingredient via the inhaler, because of reduced efficacy .

    I have an inhaler that's like a year expired but I still use it if I really need to. Guess I should get a new one, but yes it will still help

    It is not expired. Sometimes after starting inhalers your chest will tighten up until you are used to it. This is from a lifetime asthmatic (age 38) and mother of 2 asthmatics, as well as sister of 3 asthmatics and aunt of 4 asthmatics.

    I would just get a new one. Especially since it's for your lungs.
