The Dose Of Antibiotic Drug In Infants Aged 1 Month?
, ask again. My child is a baby for more than 1 month, and he is routinely given Flagyl antibiotics, because he has a submandibular abscess. So today I just gave the medicine once, the recommended dose should be 3×1 day. How can I give it once today?
Hello Kirey, Thank you for the question.
Flagyl is a drug trademark that contains metronidazole which is used to treat bacterial infections in the body. The recommended dose of drug administration is 3 times a day so that the level of this drug remains stable in the blood and can overcome bacterial infections that occur. If you only give this medicine once a day or it is not as recommended, it is not effective for treating bacterial infections. The risk is that the infection continues and does not go away. You should follow the drug administration recommendations. Do not give drugs, especially to children without doctor's advice. Please return to consult with the doctor who treats your child if after completing the medication dose, the infection does not go away.
Hope this information is helpful.
