  • If her doctor told you to give her dimetapp, he should have recommended a dosage. Call and ask her pediatrician.

  • My initial answer is NONE.

    Doctors orders? Call and ask.

    I would not give a 1 year old that medication.

  • then you call the doctor (or a pharmacist) and ask... they have charts that go by weight.

  • ASK THE DOCTOR!! Why would you leave the office without finding out that information?
