Varies. The dose of Amoxil (amoxicillin) depends on the infection being treated. For most things it is ~45mg/kg divided twice a day. So your child would receive probably the 250mg/tsp formulation with instructions to give it twice a day (note: amount given doesn't have to be precisely what is calculated, so long as it is close). For ear infections the dose is higher, usually 80-90mg/kg divided twice a day.
For what illness. For ear and sinus 400 mg twice a day for ten days.For other more concerning infections it may be different.
