whats the normal dosage of co-amoxiclave ? why some give it 2x a day why one doctor told me its proper dosage is 3x a day for adults.
Children weighing 40 kg or more are given the same dose as adults. The usual dosage is one 500-mg tablet of Augmentin every 12 hours or one 250-mg tablet every 8 hours. For more severe infections, one 875-mg tablet every 12 hours or one 500-mg tablet every 8 hours may be recommended.
It is important to note that two 250-mg Augmentin tablets are not equivalent to one 500-mg tablet (they contain the same amount of amoxicillin, but not the same amount of clavulanate potassium).
Hope the info helps? Take care, please, best wishes!
