In brief: Yes

All drugs expire eventually.
There should be an expiration date on your prescription. When in doubt, throw out anything greater than 1 year old.

don't flush drugs down the toilet; they can get into the ground water supply & contaminate wells; check with your doc as to how to dispose of them safely

In brief: Certainly

While some meds may be in a stable form and hold strength longer than others they all will expire eventually.
Amoxicillin liquid preparations prescribed for kids often go bad in hours in a heated car, days at room temperature in 2 wks if refrigerated. Pills or capsules would have an expiration date listed on the prescription bottle.
