What is the strength of the amoxicillin?
Curious that amoxicillin was prescribed at all for a viral infection since viruses do not respond to antibiotics at all.
Usual dose for bacterial infections is 20 mg/kg/day, so for his weight 320 mg per day in 4 divided doses. That is 80 mg per dose. A 1 mL dose is 63 mg, which is close enough, especially if it is a viral infection which won't respond to antibiotics anyway.
Did you have additional questions about this before leaving a rating (hopefully a "5") since that is the only way I am credited with answering questions. This costs you nothing.
I'm told you still haven't rated.
