Directions for use:
Disperse dose to be given in water or the beverage of your choice and drink immediately. Mix vigorously until powder is dispersed thoroughly. Your physician will vary dosage based on your child’s weight. It is recommended that the dose be divided in thirds or in half, depending on the child’s schedule. One-third dose, three times daily; or one-half dose, twice daily are the preferred schedules. Some parents use twice a day dosing on weekdays and three times per day on weekends.
DRN’s weight chart for dosage follows:
• Standard 5.2 gm (one level baking teaspoon) dose is for a child of 52 pounds
• One half dose of 2.6 gm is one level ½ baking teaspoon
• Children weighing 20 pounds, use 25% of the 5.2 gm dose
• Children weighing 30 pounds, use 50% of the 5.2 gm dose
• Children weighing 40 pounds, use 75% of the 5.2 gm dose
• Children weighing 90 pounds, use 125% of the 5.2 gm dose
• Children weighing 125 pounds, use 150% of the 5.2 gm dose
Weights falling in between these ranges will require some approximation on the parent’s part. Slight variances are not of nutritional significance. “Place setting” teaspoons are not uniform, therefore baking spoons are preferred. Check with the physician’s office if questions arise.
