Expired Amoxicillin! HELP

I just found an old bottle of amoxicillin in our trash can along with a medicine cup in the sink. My 5 y/o admitted to drinking it. I had no idea it was still in there! I do not know how much was left in the bottle. Do I need to worry about side effects from this? He seems fine right now, playing as normal. Thanks for any help.

I suggest if you speak to your doctor as I believe he/she would be in a better position to confirm if there are any risks. By the way, in case of overdose or taking medicine which has expired, you should have noticed some side effects. So, probably, your kid is fine..Regards
