  • How much does the 9 year old weigh?
    Why not give him/her a 200 mg to start off and after 4-6 hours if the pain is still there, give them another one.

  • 400 should be okay- but I wouldn't give them more than that
    *unless it is a tiny kid then go with 200

  • Ummm, medication dosing question should never be asked of random strangers on the Internet. What if we are full of shit and just say sure you can... then your kid ends up with liver damage??? Ask your doctor or phamistst this... come on, be a responsilbe parent!!!
