It : It depends on the strength of the oral suspension and the weight of your child. Cephalexin oral suspension comes in 2 strengths: 125mg/5ml or 250mg/5ml the recommended dosage for a child with strep throat is between 25-50mg/kg (2.2 lbs) twice a day for 10 days. If he is on the 125mg /5ml then he is getting about 312.5mg/dose. This is an appropriate dose for a child 12-24 lbs. If he is on the 250mg/5ml then he is getting 625mg/dose. This is an appropriate dose for a child 24lbs to 50 lbs. If you have any other questions about his medication, give his doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more
