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

Please tell any over-the-counter syrup available for kids having
pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, chlorphenamine maleate, acetaminophen?
I do not think so: If you are asking for a single medication that is available otc with all 3 ingredients, I am not aware of any. You can find some that have the Pseudoephedrine and the chlorpheniramine but not the acetaminophen. I believe advil (ibuprofen) allergy sinus is close having Ibuprofen instead of the Acetaminophen in pill form. That said, cold medications are not recommended for children less than 4 years of age. ...Read more
Should any pediatric endo doc's use adult 11.25 im (3 month slow release dose) on a child every 28days 4 precious puberty for 1 year? Why / why not?
Usually not : The 3- month prep is used every 3 months. Studies have shown its effectiveness suppressing gonadotropins in children using it that way. I've not encountered it used monthly, nor are there published studies using that formulation monthly. If 11.25 mg isn't working, there is an effective 30 mg dose which is used every 3 months. The supprelin implant which is annually replaced is also very effective. ...Read more
