I gave my son expired cetirizine of 2012 by mistake. What is the consequences?

The most likely occurrence would be that nothing would happen. If anything, the expired cetirizine (Zyrtec) may not be as effective as expected. Please check your medications every 6 months at least. Properly discard any drugs you are no longer taking or that have expired.
