All medicines have a shelf life after which time they should be thrown away as their safety and efficacy can no longer be guaranteed by the manufacturer.
If these medicines are in their original containers the expiry date should be on the label somewhere (usually in very small print).
If they have been repackaged, by your pharmacist, you should call your pharmacy and ask for shelf life guidelines.
The usual dose of ibuprofen for pain for children up to 11 years is 10 mg/kg orally every 6 to 8 hours as needed.
The recommended maximum daily dose is 40 mg/kg.
You will need to know your son's weight to calculate the dosage.
