expiration dates

ok this is going to sound silly BUT....how long are medicinal creams & gels good for (like cortizones & neosporine types) i have some damn near full tubes of each taht are just a little past the date on the end of the tube (okokok...one is 2 years over) i hate to spend the money to get new ones if the old ones will work..(sad huh over less than $5 worth of stuff) any ideas out there? for that matter what about things like tylenol too?
