Have you taken the child to the doctor? How do you know its strep if you didn't? I don't think I'd give a child levofloxacin unless a dr told you to. It has some pretty nasty side effects. There are simpler antibiotics for strep throat.

For pete's sake, what's wrong with the doc? If you tell me what the child weighs, I can figure the dose for you.

68 pounds

it would be 250 mg a day, for 10-14 days. You might want to give the pharmacy a call and see what they say just to be sure.
