Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Vitazyme contains digestive enzymes.

Don't be panic and nothing to worry.

Usually there will be no any dangerous side effects by giving expired vitazyme drops.

But observe for any vomitings, loose motions, abdominal distention, rash ,and if you find any abnormality consult the Pediatrician.

Don't keep expired medication at home.

Don't use medications of previous prescriptions for current problems.

Hope I have answered your query.

Thanks for your query.
Relax,there is nothing to worry.Vitazyme is a multienzyme drop and it will not cause any significant problem.
I suggest you to observe your baby for any vomiting or loose motion for 24 hours.
Do not keep expired medicines at home.

Wishing your baby good health.
