I just gave my dd 2 doses of antibiotic! HELP!!

I gave my dd a 1tsp of Cefzil, her antibiotic. Then gave her another a tsp of Amox accidently right after! I wasn't thinking! It was supposed to be for my other son. I did call the Dr. but she hasn't called me back. Will she be okay? She's 21 months.

  • she should be ok. I read the label wrong one time and double dosed my son....I was freaking out, but they were fine.
    Just call the doc or pharmisist to ask if there will be any adverse reactions to combining the meds.

  • Anon :12 Op here, I gave her her dose then got distracted by everyone and measured the next dose for my son, she was right in front of me and I gave it to her! Total accident...a mistake! I'm sure you've made mistakes before!

  • She'll be fine. She might have an upset tummy from all the antibiotics but it's not going to harm her.
    How big is the your other son? Just wondering how large of a dose it was....

  • Op here @ amijanell my son is 6 and weighs around 49 lbs. He is on Amoxil (1 tsp 2x a day). Dr. called back, said she'll be fine. Just not to give her the nightly dose as it can cause an upset stomach. Thanks to those who helped! It's been crazy around here with everyone sick and on meds!
