Amoxicillin 400mg 5ml Dosage For 2 Year Old
What's the correct dosage for amoxicillin and how much a day for my 3 1/2 year old. Weighing 37 pounds. She has strep.
Rx'd by physician?: Was the strep throat formally diagnosed by a physician? Strep should be diagnosed by a physician via a rapid test or culture, you don't want to treat with antibiotics for a viral pharyngitis. The physician would have prescribed the amoxicillin in the dosage that is correct. As a general rule, it is 40 mg/kg per day divided into 2-3 doses for a strep infection. Amount depends on concentration. ...Read more
My 36lb. 3 1/2 year old son was prescribed amoxicillin 400mg/5ml at a dosage of 8 mls. Twice a day for strep throat. I am concerned that the dosage is?
Dosage is fine: More than that can be given in other acute infections, although for a strep throat 5-6 ml /dose would suffice given your son's weight, but the extra 2-3 ml wouldn't be harmful, probably your son's doctor suspected an upper respiratory infection as well such as acute sinusitis. You may want to verify it with your doctor if you're concerned, otherwise continue till the follow up visit, good luck ...Read more

Yes: Drugs are generally effective 1-2 years past their expiry dose. It sounds like a good plan in view of the weather. Make sure they are yours and you are not allergic to PCN. What are you taking them for? All the best and stay safe. ...Read more
Two year old had allergic reaction to amoxicillin. Dr replaced it with cefprozil. Instruct on cefprozil say not to take it if allergic to penicillin?
Old concern: The caution on cephalosporins if penicillin allergic dates back decades to how they were produced--there often was pcn in the cephalosporins as a byproduct. Even then, risk was rare and tiny. Now even smaller, and far better to not exclude two huge antibiotic categories at young age if don't need to. Keep an eye on child as with any medication, but should not pose a problem. ...Read more
Depends on kid: I have had kids as young as 2 take pills. I doubt if this would be the proper dose for any 4 yo for most conditions. If you are using left over meds from some other kid/condition you may be doing more harm than good. ...Read more

My 2 year old is on day3 of amoxicillin for tonsillitis which followed a cold. Cough has lasted 3 weeks & since having the medicine the cough is worse. Really husky. Should I get her checked again?

My 2 year old is taking amoxicillin right now for ear, can he still get epiglottis or would the amoxicillin prevent it cause its bacterial?
Unlikely: Epiglottitis usually presents abruptly as the presenting illness in a kid under 5. The introduction of the current HIB vaccine given in early infancy has reduced the frequency of this disease by over 95%. Amoxicillin and it's earlier cousin ampicillin easily kill this germ. Any kid who is up to date on his shots & on amoxicillin is unlikely to have epiglottis, ever. ...Read more

My 3 1/2 year old weighs 28.2lbs and was prescribed amoxicillin for ear infection. Does 7.2 ml 2x daily sound correct or is that to much??
My 2 year old has blister like pimples on his knees and elbows. He says they don't itch or hurt, he was taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for an URI?
Rashes: Are best evaluated by being seen...Literally. Blister like pimples on elbows and knees could be molluscum conatgiosum...Can't tell without seeing. You don't say how long they have been there. Did they appear since he was on the medication or before? Could be a viral rash. Does not sound like a typical allergy rash from medication. Make an appointment with your physician for the best answer. ...Read more
Mumps is a viral illness: Being that mumps is a viral illness the Amoxil (amoxicillin) will not help it. Lymph nodes are very common in children but most of the time are not significant. Giving your child and antibiotic just because there's a large lymph nodes is one of the problems that tends to lead to resistance and antibiotics. You really need someone to look at the child before you start giving antibiotics. ...Read more
How long for Cefdinir to work on Strep in a 2 yr old? Amoxicillin ineffective for two days, switched to cefdinir last night, still very fevered & weak
Hi, my two year old (30 lb) daughter went to the doctor for a fever of 104.6. She was prescribed liquid ammoxicillan 50mg/ml dosed at two ML 2x/day. Is this dose right?
For what????: Antibiotics including amoxicillin are usually dosed by weight and condition. A bladder infection would be dosed lower than an ear infection.That said, I cannot remember ever using a dose that low for anything. My usual for an ear infection at her weight would be 600 mg twice a day, a bladder infection 350 mg twice a day. ...Read more
My son was prescribed amoxicillin 400mg/5ml, at 9ml twice a day. Is this a normal amount for a 38lbs 4-1/2 yr old boy? So about 720mg x2for 24hr perio
Yes: Years ago (two decades) the recommended dose would be less, but germ resistance has changed that. Now we dose based on type of problem and weight. The med is concentrated in urine, so we can get by with less for UTI, but for ears/sinuses/etc we give up to 80-90mg/kg/day which is where this dose fits. ...Read more

My almost 3 yr old has the start of pneumonia is on amoxil (amoxicillin) can my almost 2 yr old get it? Is pneumonia contagious
Not necessarily: But the organism causing the pneumonia may be contagious, even though it does not cause pneumonia in the sibling. Pneumonia just means that an infection has spread to the air spaces in the lungs. The same bacteria or virus could limit itself to the upper respiratory tract in another child. ...Read more

My 5 1/2 yr old son has complained this last week that his heart is beating fast. He did have strep throat the week before and was on amoxicillin. When I take his pulse for 10 secs and multiply by 6. It's been anywhere from 85-120. He feels this rapid
Normal heart rate: This is a normal heart rate for a 5 and half years old child. Now a common reason for fast heart rate in children is fever, common colds and dehydration. Children tend to drink and eat less when they are not feeling well and eventually become dehydrated. Make sure that your child had adequate fluid intake, control fever if any with Tylenol (acetaminophen). if the problem persist, then consult with his doctor ...Read more
