The recommended dose is 5 ml

Detailed Answer:
Hi
The recommended dose of Meftal P as per your your child's weight and age is 5 ml/dose. It can be repeated every 8 hours if required. If the fever is not responding, then give Crocin Ds 6 ml along with it. Cold sponging will be useful.

Hopefully this will help him. I would be happy to help you in any further questions.
Take care
