Using an AD524 at a low supply voltage

I am using an AD 524 in an application that operates from ±5V supply rails and has a common mode input voltage range from 0 to +2V maximum and an output common mode voltage range from 0 to approximately 200mV. Understanding that parametric performance is affected because we are operating below the specified minimum rail voltage of ±6V and also exceeding the maximum input common mode range, too, are we in any possible way causing an overstress condition to occur which could result in a catastrophic failure of this part in the form of a shorted rail or other such condition?
