Suggest Zentel dosage for an infant - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Hello Dr. XXXXXXX I have a son of age 1year 2 months (14 months)
he had got Amoabiasis and doctor prescribed a medicine and to check if the ameobiasis is gone, i got a repeat stool test done for him
10 ml or 400 mg looked very for 14months baby.
very high for a 14months boy.
You should give 200mg
i brought the medicine. what is the right dose
ok. how many times and in what intervals
5 ml should be enough for your baby
repeat after one week
ok. 200mg is fine for 14 months baby?
after 3 years 400 mg can be given
before that 200 mg
what should i do so that he doesnt get hard stools?
Include more fiber in the diet
and give him more water to drink
his stool is somewhat dark also.
any pain in the tummy?
no, nothing at all. he is always active and a happy baby.
then nothing much to worry
just make your baby drink water
and include fiber in the diet
Thank you very much Dr. XXXXXXX i appreciate your help very much.
you are welcome
