My 3 year old grandson - 40 lbs - was prescribed 2 tsp of prednisolone 15mg / 5 ml solomor. It seems like too much in the oral syringe. Can anyone give any light on whether this is the recommended dosage?
I am sorry but when it comes to toddlers or children in general, the best person to ask is your pediatritian, they are so delicate at this age.
Maybe if you give you chemist a call, he / she might clarify this delicte subject.-
Children may be more sensitive to the effects of too much corticosteroid medication.
