We just got our first prescription for antibiotics. 500mg per day of Azithromax. Is this too much??? My DD8 only weighs 67 pounds.

The plan is to try it for 2 months to see what happens.

 

Hoping for serious improvements as she has been on the rampage today.

 

God bless,

Holly

My ds8 is 72 lbs and we are on 500 zith we started out on 250 and it was not doing the job- when we upped to 500 we saw a big difference. We have been on it for about 3 months now- going to the Dr on Wed to see what we do next -we are 8 weeks out from IVIG.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the reply ladies. Also what puzzles me is that the dosage is to be taken all at once? I would have thought it would

be better to have 250mg in the morning and 250mg at night. Hmmmmmm....

Azithromycin has a very long half-life so once a day is fine for this particular antibiotic.
