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.

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

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.

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?

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.

Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Consult urologist.: In mean time get urine tested for infection or presence of sugar (to rule out diabetes) stop drinking after dinner. Set an alrm for 2 - 3 hours after you go to bed. Try a bedwetting alarm (malem, wet stop, nytone etc). You might need medication such as desmopressin or a bladder anticholinergic such as oxybutinin er, detrol, vesicare (solifenacin) etc. However still consult with urologist.
