Has anyone missed a dose of amoxicillin for their infant? I didn't get a chance to call her pedi before they closed so I'm not for sure if I should skip it or give her two doses close together. Here's the details....she takes 4ml every 12 hours. She had 3 doses and then missed this morning. I gave her a dose at 6 p.m. when we got home. Do I go ahead and give her another 4ml before bed or just wait until the a.m. to continue?
I'm leaning towards skip it if I don't get any concrete previous experiences. Ugh, I suck :( I'm setting a reminder for tomorrow a.m.!!
Skip it. you will just have to make up for it in the end
give it to her before bed.
I just found it on the internet too. The first site I checked said contact your pedi. Duh, I would if they were open.. :)
MISSED DOSE: If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.
we skipped it the doses are specifically set for what she has since amoxcillin is given for so many things. it say also on that handout thingy you get with medicine if you miss a doss skip it and give it the next time you are supposed to.
