I'm looking for dosage information for a 7 year old. My niece is puking (exuse the language), and I can't seem to find the correct dosage information for kids who are over 5 years, under 12 years. I have the phenergan(promethazine), 50mg. We cut it into 12.5 mg quarters, and we're trying to get her to keep one quarter down. This drug has done absolute wonders in the past, both in tablet and suppository formulations. It can really save a trip to the hospital for dehydration, if you get it into the system early enough. I just can't remember the dosage for someone her size.

Hi Gary....
I am not sure when you posted this, but just as a FYI, 12.5 mg is fine for her age. If she has never had it before then just keep a close watch on her and any breathing changes the first few times to make sure she has no allerigic reaction to it. Generally though, it is 12.5 for children 5-12, every 6-8 hours, and no child under 2 should ever be given this drug, as it can effect their breathing. Not only do I know meds, as a profession, but I have a 10 yr. old son too and I give this med to him every flu season, and it does work wonders! Hope this helps and let me know if anyone needs any other help with medicines.
