For11 lb infant,  infant tylenol (acetaminophen) (concentration 160 mg/5ml) dose, is the correct dose 60 mg which is 1.8 ml ?

That is ok: 60mg is fine for that weight, but it's easier to use 2.0ml (64mg). An 11lb baby can take 75mg per dose, but parents should not use tylenol (acetaminophen) on a young baby unless the doctor already knows about the symptoms and has agreed that tylenol (acetaminophen) should be used. ...Read more

Baby weight is 26 pounds, tylenol (acetaminophen) 80 mg q6h prn ordered. How much tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given in one dose?

Baby weight is 26 pounds, tylenol (acetaminophen) 80 mg q6h prn ordered.  How much tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given in one dose?

That means 80mg/dose: A normal baby can take 6.8 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) (acetominophen) per pound of body weight, in one dose. That means 6.8 mg x 26 pounds = 176.8 mg (but round down to 160 mg for simplicity). Tylenol (acetaminophen) is typically used for just 1-3 days. The baby's doctor may have recommended a smaller dose for some reason, as he knows the baby's details. ...Read more

Suffering frm neck TB lymphadenitis. Is rifampin 600mg, INH 300 mg, ethambutol 1100 mg & pyrazinamide 1600mg correct dosage for a 77 kg weight.

Suffering frm neck TB lymphadenitis. Is rifampin 600mg, INH 300 mg, ethambutol 1100 mg & pyrazinamide 1600mg correct dosage for a 77 kg weight.

TB treatment: You are being treated with 4 medications which is good - since it doesn't allow the TB bacteria any good chance of 'escaping' from the treatment. Hopefully only 1 drug is really needed- but I expect you may find that out in the future. Your ethambutol dose and pyrazinamide doses could be a little bit higher, but I am not worried. INH & Rif are the main drugs for treating this & they r dosed well. ...Read more
