Hello aisyah, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Captopril is an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE inhibitor) drug that can be given to infants and children with hypertension or heart failure. For infants aged 4 months, the maximum dose that can be given is 6 mg/kg/day. In administering this drug, clinical judgment is required from each doctor.

If you are in doubt about the dose given, it's a good idea to immediately call the pharmacy where you bought the medicine to make sure the dose given is according to the doctor's prescription. If it is appropriate, you should immediately ask the doctor who treats your child to be sure. Should not stop or change the dose of therapy without the knowledge of your child's doctor, because it can be dangerous for your child's health condition.

That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
