Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Even before I went through your message properly one thing is very striking and prominent here.

A baby of six months is being given Dolo 250mg 5 ml every 4 hourly. Either you should be wrong in mentioning that your baby is 6 months old or you might have mentioned the dosage wrong.

This is because the dosage of we give that much dosage of paracetamol to a 16 or 17 kg baby. Normally a baby of six months will weigh around 6kg and a dosage of 90mg per dose is sufficient in such a kid. The normal dosage of paracetamol is 15mg/kg/dose.

So there is something wrong.
Please reply immediately.

Hope this helps.
Take care
