Thank you for your query,
The dose of Advent drops depends on the amoxycillin base content and it is 20-40mg/kg/day divided into 8th or 12 th hourly and the drops usually consist of 80 mg of amoxycillin dose per each ml.
So the calculations are made by your Pediatrician and depending on the clinical situation he will prescribe the dose for your child.
So continue the medications in prescribed dosage by your Pediatrician go for review if necessary.
Hope i have answered your query.
