my dd is not even 10 yet but she is already 90lbs and in the highest dose bracket for all children's medicine (going off of weight) and it kinda sucks because we buy the liquid Children's Motrin and her dose alone is like 1/3 of the bottle! We've also gotten the "Junior strength" Tylenol but even then she's taking 3 of the chewable tablets for the right dose. She can/will NOT swallow pills so we haven't tried making her take an 'adult' medicine yet but its getting to the point where I just can't afford to keep buying more and more of the Children's medicine (I have 3 kids so seem to go through it a LOT not just from her, but at least the other two are just taking like 1tsp-1.5tsp doses at a time). What would really be great is if they made 'adult' doses in chewables, i hate swallowing pills too but at least I don't gag and throw up every time like she does...Answer Question
