Official answer


If the doctor has prescribed that dose of Amoxil for your child then it can be taken.

If it wasn't prescribed to your child then it is not safe to administer the medicine.

For children weighing more than 40 kilograms (kg) (88 pounds), appropriate dose is 250 to 500 milligrams (mg) every eight hours or 500 to 875 mg every twelve hours, depending on the type and severity of the infection.
