Can slight over dose of Augmentin cause harm to a baby?
Nothing to worry.
Thanks for writing to HMC.
I can understand your concern, i would like to tell you that the usual dose of amoxycillin(drug in the augmentin) is 25 to 40 mg/kg/day in divided doses every 12 for throat infection.
As you told the weight of your child is 23 kg, so 5ml can be given safely.
You should not postpone or skip the dose in fact as per details provided by you like (augmentin dds which contains 250mg amoxycillin and weight of child 23 kg), you can/should give her 6ml two times a day after consulting with your doctor.
Just check the weight of your baby is it really 23kg because to me it looks little bit on higher side for 2yrs age.
I will be happy to help you again if you have some query.
Thanks, hope i helped you.
Still it's okay.
Thanks for writing to me again.
You don't panic, its all right.
At the most she might have some loose stools for which you can give probiotics like sporlac XXXXXXX two times a day.
Continue augmentin dds 3ml twice a day from tomorrow.
No need to skip or reduce the dose.
Hope your child speedy recovery.
