Baby Zinc 20 mg Tab
Zinc is an important micronutrient for a child's overall health and development.
Zinc is lost in greater quantities during diarrhoea. Replacing the lost zinc is important to decrease the length and severity of the diarrhoea, to help the child fight off new episodes of diarrhoea in 2-3 months following treatment. So, Baby Zinc is used as adjuvant therapy with Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) to replace the lost zinc.
Each dispersible tablet contains Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate USP equivalent to Zinc 20 mg.
Baby Zinc is indicated for the treatment of diarrhoea with Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) in children between 6 months and 5 years of age.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
In the treatment of diarrhoea : Zinc should be given as soon as diarrhoea starts. Children (between 6 months to 5 years): 1 tablet once daily for 10 consecutive days. If the child vomits after giving zinc wait for one hour. If there is no further vomiting give the child another dose of zinc.
OR AS DIRECTED BY THE PHYSICIAN.
