Paracetamol Dose For Babies Aged 6 Months?
I want to ask, what is the dose of paracetamol for babies aged 6 months?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the dose of the drug in children is determined based on the diagnosis of the disease (for example in the administration of antibiotics) and also the child's weight. Paracetamol itself is a heat-lowering drug and pain reliever, for infants and children, this drug is given at a dose of 10-15 mg / kg of a child's body weight per administration. For example, a child's body weight is 7.5 kg, then the dosage range for children is 75 mg to 112.5 mg. Medication can be given in any amount as long as it is in that range. Note that the dose does not indicate the volume of medication that must be given. To find out the volume of drugs that should be given to children, you must change the dose (in mg) to volume (in mL). For example, Paracetamol in the form of a drop contains 100 mg of paracetamol per 1 mL. So if you want to give Paracetamol at a dose of 80 mg, you can give 0.8 mL of medicine or if you want to give Paracetamol at a dose of 100 mg, you can give 1 mL of medicine.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
