Q.

Duphalac

Hi dr
What is the correct dosage of Duphalac for a 3 year old &  for how long should I give it to my son? The bottle did not come with any packaging. My son is extremely constipated due to potty training &  I''ve tried the natural route (increased fibre etc) without any luck. I want to give him as little as possible for the shortest period of time.
Thanks!

The correct dose for your 3 year old son is 5ml twice daily. This treatment may take up to 48 hours before it acts.
