Please Note

The tables on the following pages are intended to give general dosing guidelines for certain medications. If there are questions between the information here and the information on the label, always go by the information on the label.

Please remember that a temperature greater than 100.4oF (>38oC) is considered a fever in any child not vaccinated, generally in the first 2 months of life. In this age group please do not treat fever at home; instead bring your child in to be seen by a physician.

Also, please use a digital probe thermometer in the first few months of life. These can be used either in the armpit or in the rectum. Please do not use ear, forehead or pacifier thermometers early on as they can be unreliable.

Cough and cold medicines are not recommended for any children under the age of 4 years old as they are not effective and can lead to harmful side effects. Your physician may make exceptions in certain situations but please clear it with them first. For further information on this topic please refer to this link from the CDC.
