Children's Medication Dosage

Administering medications to children requires careful consideration of their age, weight, and the specific medication being used.

Dosing guidelines for children are generally different from those for adults because children's bodies metabolize drugs differently, and their needs vary as they grow.

Before administering any medication, double-check the dosage and confirm that you have the correct medication prescribed for your child. This step helps prevent medication errors.
