Thanks for the query.
The dose of suppository is 80 to 100 mg every 4 to 6 hours,so you have not given a lw dose.
If you want to switch to oral paracetamol syrup,the dose is 10 to 15 mg/kg body weight of child every 4 to 6 hours.
You can give the oral paracetamol after 4 hours of the suppository.
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck.
