Does any one know what a good dose
for an 11 year old who weighs 85 lbs
is for Bactrim? My LLMD has him on
2 per day regular strength and I want
to make sure that is enough and that he
is not being under treated???? He is also
on Mepron 1 tsp 2 x day and Zith adult dose.

Thanks in advance!
Stacy

My 13 yo is on regular bactrim (400/80), 1 tab bid. With the younger ones, don't think they go with the DS.

squashlyme is probably talking about the liquid form of Bactrim for kids.

However, that dose (1 tsp twice daily) is half of what your son is taking:

"Each teaspoonful (5 mL) of SEPTRA Grape Suspension contains 40 mg trimethoprim and 200 mg sulfamethoxazole "

Thanks to all of you!

Tickbattler?
I know your kids were on Bactrim but
just trying to get the right dose and
not under treat again

Anyone else?

Thanks again
