Thank You for your query.

1. The dose of Amoebriz is the same for an adult and any child above the age of 10 to 12 years.
2. Standard dose will be 2 tablets in a single dose. This requires a prescription to purchase , please consult your doctor.
3. This is true for most antihelminthic medicines as they act in the lumen of the gut and are poorly absorbed into the body. Whatever little is absorbed usually does not cause side effects.
4. Though it is not mandatory, you may follow up the dose with a laxative like isabgol (psyllium seed) husk the next day to purge the system of any damaged portions or debris of the worms and parasites.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
