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?

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 more

If a drug is suspended into 250 mg/ 5 ml suspension, 250 mg being the strength of the active ingredient. What do we call the 5 ml? Is it the dilution?

If a drug is suspended into 250 mg/ 5 ml suspension, 250 mg being the strength of the active ingredient. What do we call the 5 ml? Is it the dilution?

Not exactly: The term 250 mg/5 ml is the concentration of the drug (the amount of drug in milligrams in a particular volume of liquid). In other words, a much greater concentration would be 250mg/1ml (meaning the entire dose is present in a very small volume), while a much lower concentration (ie more dilute) suspension might have 250 mg in 10 ml. ...Read more

What is the correct ml dosage of ic amoxicillin 250mg/5ml suspension for a 3yr old that weighs 29lbs?

What is the correct ml dosage of ic amoxicillin 250mg/5ml suspension for a 3yr old that weighs 29lbs?

Check with doctor: Though there are standard dosages for infants and children based on weight regarding antibiotics it is best to check with the prescribing pediatrician since they may not be following those numbers strictly depending upon the situation & severity of infection being treated. It may be an error to simply follow a number based on weight unless you know that you're in step with the doctor's plans. ...Read more

My 8 year old daughter was prescribed 12.6 ML twice a day of amoxicillin 400MG / 5 ML suspension twice a day for pneumonia. Is this right?

My 8 year old daughter was prescribed 12.6 ML twice a day of amoxicillin 400MG / 5 ML suspension twice a day for pneumonia. Is this right?

Hard to say: The drug dose is based both on weight & problem. Without her weight it's hard to make specific recommendations. The estimated 55 lb 8 yo would get 80mg/kg/d with that schedule which is okay for a presumed pneumococcal pneumonia. You might be able to get by with less, but that germ has become more resistant over the past 2 decades. ...Read more

What can be done if a 2 year old drinks well over half a bottle 250 mg / 5 ml amoxicillin for oral suspension that was prescribe a 6 month old baby?

Not a problem: Other than some diarrhea and possibly an upset stomach, this is not going to be harmful and there is no antidote needed for an Amoxicillin overdose. They will be fine, but I wouldn't want to be the one changing diapers the next few days! ...Read more

5mo girl prescription 0.5mg/2 ml budesonide inhalation suspension 2x/day until spring due to persistent bronchiolitis. Pros and cons? Any advice?

Acceptable plan: If pt has had multiple episodes of bronchiolitis with wheezing or persistent wheezing, it may not be a bad idea to put on a daily dose of inhaled steroids to see if it can decrease inflammation and improve breathing/cough etc. Given these exacerbations happen more in the winter due to more viral illnesses, it makes sense to continue until the spring ...Read more

Children's tylenol (acetaminophen) grape flavor oral suspension, 3.38 fl oz: for my 1yer old and his fever is99.5 is that ok to give him 1.25 (ml)?

Need weight: You have to check his weight. You basically want up to 15mg per kg. Which is pounds divided by 2.2 x 15. Then figure out the dose from there. If you get the weight I'm sure someone can give you a more exact answer. ...Read more

Is it real a 5-10 ml of carnation oil would damage the lever if taken by mistake or added to the salad?

Possibly: You should call the poison control center in your area and ask them. Do it right away. And don't worry about what they might think; they get calls about people ingesting all kinds of things. I did some quick research and the oil seems dangerous only if you inhale it. But I depends on how concentrated it is, the manufacturer, etc. Let me know what you find out! ...Read more

More to it: You will get fertilized (pregnant) by a single live sperm during ovulation by your home insemination with 5 cc or 10 cc syringe, but there is more to it. You to over come legal implication, future litigation problems, screening of the donor, chances of getting std s including, hepatitis, HIV etc, think about it before you undertake your home project and compelling reason to seek help. ...Read more

Normal range for d-dimer is <500ng/ml feu. Would 590 be normal for male person who is 61 years old? For person older > 50 does formula age x 10 apply?

Normal range for d-dimer is <500ng/ml feu. Would 590 be normal for male person who is 61 years old? For person older > 50 does formula age x 10 apply?

Not a usual test: You are asking the wrong question. A D-dimer is unlike other tests in that you need a reason to obtain one. This reason impacts the interpretation. There is not a normal level that you "should be" just walking around. This test is a screening mechanism for people with suspected blood clots and even in that situation it has to be applied correctly. Speak to the Dr who ordered it. ...Read more

Caution advised: Thanks for your question. This is a very common question/problem.

Abruptly stopping medications like celexa (citalopram) can causing something called the "SSRI discontinuation syndrome." This can cause dizziness, irritability, and "brain zaps."

You will need to gradually taper off of the medication to minimize these symptoms. Talk to you doc! ...Read more

I took 10 mL of cherratussin & a small sip of NyQuil am I ok?

You will be fine,: Just be cautious with the Cheratussin ac, as it contains codeine, which interacts with many drugs as all cold and flu remedies, anxiolytics, antidepressants, alcohol, etc. Cheratussin itself can metabolize fast into morphine which is a potent CNS depressant so be careful. If you feel over sleepy, let somebody drive you to the ER, best wishes ...Read more

My daughter is on amoxicillin400/5.....It says to give her 10 ml twice daily...Seems a. Bit much...help?

Hard to say: Amoxicillin dosing depends on the weight of the kid and the problem treated. Less is given for a UTI because the drug is concentrated in the urine, compared to the more needed for the germs that attack the ears or sinuses. You did not provide a weight to review dosing. Typical ear/sinus dosing is 80-90 mg/kg divided in 2 doses. This would be an average dose for a kid of about 44 lb. ...Read more

Is there any other uses of insulin syringe (10 ml)? (It's a medical question I'm a medical student) Thank you

Is there any other uses of insulin syringe (10 ml)? (It's a medical question I'm a medical student) Thank you

Many uses.: A syringe is the plunger and barrel into which medicine is drawn up. A needle is then connected to a syringe to administer medicine. Any syringe can be used to administer medications under the skin, into the muscle, or in the case of some special needles, into bones or the epidural space in the spine. They can also be used to withdraw body fluids. An "insulin" syringe is usually 1mL, not 10. ...Read more

What do these results mean... Urine Culture, Routine (LC). .. Mixed Urogenital Flora 10, 000-25, 000 colony forming units per ML?

Urine Culture: You have "normal" bacteria which are not though to cause a disease (like a UTI) that grew from the culture. We have bacteria all over our body including the urological and genital areas that normally grow there. If you disagree and feel like you have a UTI, you can get the test repeated or look for other causes. ...Read more

My semen analysis shows 50% active, 10% sluggish and 40% non motile. Is this normal. The volume is 1.2 ml and count is120 million / ml?

Abnormal...: Sperm motility and semen volume is slightly below the low end of "normal range". But make sure the semen is collected with glass container and submitted to lab within 15-30 minutes after its collection from a "full" arousal and orgasm after at least 2-3 days of abstinence. If two testes are required, collect semen specimens at 2.5 months apart because a full cycle of sperm formation takes 74 days. ...Read more

My nice is 3 years old was given dosage of amoxicillin 400 mg 5ml 10.7 ml every 12 hours, but another dr told me 7ml every 8 hours. Wich one is?

Amoxicillin: Amoxicillin is typically dosed twice daily, but has historically been dosed three times per day. The total dosage of both frequencies mentioned is essentially the same, and either would likely produce the same result. ...Read more
