What is the maximum daily dose of paracetamol in a 5 year old child weighing 12 kg?

10 mg/kg/dose. with doses every four hours is the maximum recommended. With high fever, one can give a slightly higher first dose then the rest of the doses should be 10mg/kg or 120 mg per dose. If you need to do this for longer than 2-3 days your child will need to be examined.
