4 years old boy. Dose is 10 ml (400 ml)
For anyone above 2 years, one tablet or 10 ml of albendazole is the dose and this boy has to be given one table to 40 mg at one time. The earlier given 200 will not be counted or create any issues.
Repeat the course. Give 10 ml at one time and then repeat the same dose after 15 days. See your local pediatrician as well.
Give syp albendazole 10 ml single dose new bottle do not keep syrup opened for more then a month.
