Medication Dosages

We receive multiple phone calls per day regarding dosages of medications that can be used routinely in children.  If you have a question of whether the medication is appropriate or not in a particular situation, give the office a call.  Otherwise, use the following charts to determine a dose for your child.

Combination cough and cold medications are NOT routinely recommended for use in children.  See the following link regarding this, published by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
