Many children receiving penicillin prescriptions are under-dosed
Many children receiving penicillin prescriptions are under-dosed (March 27, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From London - Prescriptions of penicillin for children vary widely, according to a report published in the British Journal of General Practice. Researchers studied data from the IMS Disease-Analyzer database, finding that of all children under the age of one prescribed amoxicilin, none received the recommended dose--and the majority received double the dose. As well, 40% of 6-12 year olds and 70% of 12-18 year olds were prescribed doses well below guidelines.
