To calculate your child’s dose, look up his or her weight in the Dosing Guide and read across to the proper dose for each medicine listed. If you do not know your child’s weight and if your child is too young to stand on bathroom scales, a simple way to determine his or her weight is to first weigh both you and your child as you hold him. Then weigh yourself alone. Subtracting these two numbers will give you a fairly accurate weight for your child.
The doses listed in the Dosing Guides below are standard doses which are safe for your child. In some situations we recommend doses of these medications which may be slightly higher or lower than the doses recommended on the packaging of the medication. This should not concern you. If our advice calls for doses which are dramatically different, please ask us the reason for this.
