Q.

Zithromax

Hello

My daughter was in hospital this weekend for bronchopneumonia. She was prescribed zithromax and orelox to take home. The zithromax 2ml once daily and orelox 4ml twice daily.

I gave my baby girl the zithromax this morning early, and then I forgot and gave her the zithromax this evening again. Is this a problem?
She is 4 months old and weighs 6.65kg.

This is not a problem, so do not be concerned. You probably only have one dose left of the Zithromax which can be given tomorrow morning.
