    Administration Guide does not apply to infants younger than 1 week of age. For children older than 4 years of age, maintenance intakes may exceed 2 liters daily. If there is vomiting or fever, or if diarrhea continues beyond 24 hours, consult the child's physician.

    1 Weight based on the 50th percentile of weight for age for boys from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) growth charts. Kuczmarski RJ, Ogden CL, Grummer-Strawn LM, et al: CDC Growth Charts: United States. Data from Vital and Health Statistics of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention/National Center for Health Statistics. Advance Data, no. 314, December 4, 2000.

    2 Fluid intake is total fluid requirement from oral electrolyte solution, formula, or other fluids, but does not take into account ongoing stool losses. Fluid loss in the stool should be replaced by consumption of an extra amount of Pedialyte equal to stool losses, in addition to the fluid maintenance requirement in the Administration Guide.

  • Dosage

    Refer to Administration Guide to restore fluid and minerals lost in diarrhea and vomiting. Pedialyte should be offered frequently in amounts tolerated. Total daily intake should be adjusted to meet individual needs, based on thirst and response to therapy. The suggested intakes for maintenance are based on water requirements for ordinary energy expenditure.

Philadelphia: WB Saunders Co, 1996, pp 141-143.)
