In brief: Yes, but why?

If the medication is expired, it will not be as effective and isn't a good idea.
If you are having pain from surgery, i would suggest you contact your doctor so you may obtain a current prescription. Keep smiling.

In brief: Bad idea

You should not take expired medications.
While it may not be dangerous, the medication may not be effective, and it's just not a good habit to make.

In brief: Please do not

This is at least 8 years expired.
The medication probably is not be effective anymore. Make a quick call to your dentist to have a prescription called in.
