Hello! How is he doing?

I'm sorry, but there are a couple diagnoses that are abbreviated as PNA, can you please be more specific?

As to the dosage, you should follow the instruction given by the prescribing doctor. In children, the dosage varies according to the infection being treated and body weight.

Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Is there anything else I can help with?
