Approximately 5 mg per pound of body weight per day is an effective dose for most children. On this basis the following dosage schedule for children is suggested:

Children weighing 30 to 50 pounds - 125 mg to 250 mg daily.

Children weighing over 50 pounds - 250mg to 500 mg daily.

However, please double check with the doc/pharmacist before you give the med to the child.

Take care, best wishes!
