My 34lb daughter was given a dose of 1 1/2 tsp twice daily of amoxicillin 400mg but 2 days later my 50lb daughter was given the dose of only 1tsp x2 of 400mg ?! Seems off that my smaller child has the higher dosage?!
Dose for strep: You can give him roughly 25 mg/kg per dose, twice daily dosing for 10 days. If you have the 400 mg/5 ml suspension of amoxicillin, you could give him 6 ml (=480 mg) twice daily for 10 days. Make sure to give him the full 10 day course even if he is feeling well after a couple of days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
