From swim's experience, most pharmaceuticals last way past their experation date assuming they were stored in a cool, dry place. Swim has drank 15 year old promethazine/codeine cough syrup with no ill effects.

Based on a quick literature search, I didn't find any evidence that lorazepam breaks down to anything toxic. If the tablets were in a shed anywhere south of the arctic circle, they've probably degraded completely, but it wouldn't hurt to try them. With most (not all!) expired drugs, the worst that'll happen is they won't work.

Re: Will lorazepam go bad? if so how long and what does it do after?

Some prescriptions can actually become toxic after their expiration date due to the degradation of the chemicals. I would make sure that they don't look or smell any different because they can harbor bacteria, especially if they were kept in a warm and/or moist environment.

Having provided that disclaimer I can say that most medication are still very effective after their expiration date, especially those in hard pill form. While their effectiveness will dwindle over time, they may still contain some of the active ingredient.

Be safe.
