Difference between Beyond it and Off it

beyond it—(also: past it) unable any longer to pursue a normally active life as when younger:

  • Jackson is eighty, yet he still goes to business every day. Most people are beyond it long before that age.

off it—(coll.) not feeling well:

  • I shall hesitate before swallowing painkillers next time I feel off it and give natural remedies a try I think.

See also: not in it / not with it; out of it / well out of it.
