Just like 1/4 of a tablet? Is that ok?
28 Jan 2010
This is what I found on the web:
Children 12 years and older: The usual dose is 8 mg taken twice a day. The first dose should be given 30 minutes before the start of chemotherapy, with the second dose 8 hours after the first dose. Then, 8 mg is taken every 12 hours for 1 to 2 days after completion of chemotherapy.
Children 4 to 11 years old: The usual dose is 4 mg given 3 times a day. The first dose should be given 30 minutes before the start of emetogenic chemotherapy, with additional doses 4 and 8 hours after the first dose. Also, 4 mg may be given 3 times a day (every 8 hours) for 1 to 2 days after completion of chemotherapy.
It is always best to let the child's doctor know that this is what you are going to do.
