Pharmacist: The adult dose is between 250mg and 500mgs every 8 hours(roughly 3 doses per 24 hours). Check with your pharmacist to find out how many mgs in each teaspoon in the bottle of mixed amoxicillin you obtained.
Dr. Yash Khanna
Family Medicine 57 years experience
Depends on the dose: Amoxicillin comes in 250mgm in 5 ml and adults usually need 500 mgm 3 times a day So it comes to 250mgm/5ml Give 10 ml 3 times a day This for adults who refuse to swallow capsules

A member asked:

Can I start feeding adult foods to my 8-month old?

3 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Scott J. Wolfson
Pediatrics 22 years experience
Yes: If your baby is interested in table foods mash the food to a consistency that your baby can handle and go for it. Watch out for choking hazards. I generally do not introduce whole dairy products, whole eggs, strawberries, or fish until closer to 12 months and nut/peanut products or shellfish until 3 years but that can vary as well.

How can I get my baby to take amoxicillin without fussing?

Dr. Douglas Tzanetos

Small drops: Two strategies that might be helpful: one would be to drop a few drops from a dropper into your babies mouth at a time until the dose is done. Sometimes babies will tolerate this better than the whole dose at once. Also, some pharmacies will add different flavors to the antibiotic, so you can experiment over time to find out which flavor your child likes best.

When should adolescents and adults get vaccinated against tetanus? Should they get vaccinated with td or tdap?

3 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Tdap: Adolescents and adults needing a tetanus booster should get the tdap. Some age limits apply. If the person already got a tdap less than 10 years ago, was an adult at that time, and is now getting another tetanus vaccine, he can get the td, without pertussis protection. Future recommendations regarding td and tdap may change.
