Brief Answer:
Please let me know the present weight of the child.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

The dose of Meftal P suspension is 7.5mg/kg/dose to be given at a minimum interval of 8 hours. I would need to know the body weight of your child in order to be able to give you the exact amount needed for your daughter.

I will await your response.

Brief Answer:
Dosage mentioned.

Detailed Answer:
The dose is 6-8 mg/kg (taken as 7.5mg/kg) and not 0.75 mg/kg.

The dose of Meftal P (Mefenamic acid 100 mg/5ml) should be 2ml per dose for your child.
