My child has been prescribed an oral form of clyndamycin. I misplaced that piece of paper where it wrote how much I should give him.

It would be best if you called the doctor again or asked someone in the pharmacy. It all depends on child’s age and body weight. Dosage for infants up to 1 month of age must be determined by their doctors. You shouldn’t decide on your own how much to give him. If your child’s older, then the dosing goes like this: the usual dose is 2 to 5 mg per kilogram (0.9 to 2.3 mg per pound) of body weight every six hours; or 2.7 to 6.7 mg per kg (1.2 to 3.0 mg per pound) of body weight every eight hours. Even if your child is older than one month I would call a doctor anyway.
