My 6 year old 45...
My 6 year old 45 lb. son swallowed about 1 teaspoon of this before we realized it was expired. The liquid seemed extra thick which is what prompted me to check. Any abnormal risks for him from ingesting this?

The expired medicine may not have any effect.
As he has taken only one teaspoonful, there should not have any side effect.
You should not worry.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish him good health.
Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
