Dosage of Bromfed (brompheniramine) for 14 lb infant? Ped prescribed my 10 month old Bromfed (brompheniramine) for her cough: dose is 1/2 tspn/4hrs. Def not the right dose for her.
See below: Per fda recs, no otc meds for kids under 4 year old let alone under 1 year of age! and as per these meds for your infant, i can't understand why your doc would do this period! cough meds are not beneficial especially in and infant and can, in fact, cause problems like increase the risk of developing a pneumonia. I would stop the med immediately! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

My son is ten and weighs 130 lbs. He was prescribed Amoxicillin 400 mg/5 ml suspension. 2 1/2 teaspoons once daily. Is this the correct dosage?
No: The standard dose of Amoxicillin is 25-50 mg/kg/24 hours divided into three (every 8 hours) or 2 (every 12 hours) doses per day. Your child is getting 1000 mg once a day. He should be getting between 800 and 1600 mg per dose twice a day. Perhaps the physician meant to write for 1,000 mg twice a day and the RX was mistyped. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Pedi. recommended Zyrtec, (cetirizine) 9 mo boy. I mistakenly gave him 5x the dose (3 ml vs 8 drops). no visible sideeffects. Is it ok now to restart 8 drops?
No: Not to be used under 2 yrs of age. That being said, some physicians will off-label prescribe it 6 mo - 2 yr olds at around 2.5 - 5 mg/day. If you gave 3 ml (= 3 mg) it is unlikely child would have any significant side effects. Again, in general, not advisable to give kiddos under 2 antihistamines. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Prednisolonr: Usual dose is 2 mg/ kg 1st dose then 1 mg/kg daily for 4 more days. It would depend on his weight? Steroids are useful for RAD or asthma but generally not helpful for RSV which requires auctioning frequently, a cool humid environment and sometimes O2 via high flow for low oxygen levels.
