    My fenbendazole expired in November 2014, and now my fish have Cam. worms again. I really don't want to order new fendbendazole, so if I can till use it, that would be awesome.
    Thanks guys:)

    Medications lose their effectiveness as they age, so you'll need to get new meds. :(

    Thats a tough question. Its better to just order some new stuff WHEN you have the money or time. You can get medicated fenebadazole flakes from angelsplus.com for like 5.00 enough to last a couple years about how long most meds last. Some can become toxic if their too old.

    I got it in June last year. I am currently out of fish money, so it may be a little while.

    That's actually where I got it last time. My only issue with it was that the expiration date was sooner than on what it said on the listing. I'm a little Leary of ordering it from eBay again. Maybe I'll try Amazon this time.
