Brief Answer:
nothing to worry at present.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for using health care magic.
I can understand your concerns.

Your son has taken double the recommended dose for his weight. It may cause gastric upset and diarrhea but no other major complications. There is nothing to worry at present. Just wait and watch.
Skip today night's dose and give regular doses from tomorrow.

Give probiotics like sporolac sachets or enterogermina three times a day for 5 days, if he develops diarrhea.

I hope I have helped you.
If you have any further query please feel free to ask
Thank you

Hi, My 2 yr old son is suffering from stomach infection for 2 weeks now. Initially he was not given any medication except Enterogermina Oral Suspension (5ml/day) and Z&D DS 20 (1 ml/day). However, now there is mucous in his very watery smelly greenish stool. Doctor has prescribed CEFOLAC 100 (3ml twice a day for 5 days). Is it safe to use this antibiotic for a 2 year old kid?

Hello. I am currently living in XXXXXX. I have been having diarrhea for the past several days. I ve just gone to the pharmacist and was given Enterogermina (3 vials of 2 billion spores of polyantibiotic) and Debby ( nifuroxazide ). Are the right thing to be taking? The Debby seems ok but the Enterogermina makes me nervous....and if it s a antibiotic surely I d need more than three vials? Also, are there any side effects to these drugs? Thanks!
