my dr said to give my 4 year old 25 mg, then i can repeat in 15 minutes if not better. my little girl is less than average size. what do you think?
gloriajs; Yes as far as the beginning dosage, for the allergic reaction, But normally the second dose should not be needed in 15 minutes, The first dose has not gotten into her system unless she is having severe breathing problem and for that I WOULD take her to the E.R. you can't take any chances with a 4-year-old. Good luck hope she is feeling better.
