    The dose of Gantrisin Pediatric depends on the weight of the patient in kilograms. The first dose is 75 mg/kg. The next doses are 150mg/kg/day divided in 4 doses (about 37.5 mg/kg for each dose).

    Gantrisin comes in bottles of 100 mg/ml. For example, a 10 kg infant (about 22 pounds) would be given 1 1/2 tsp for the first dose and 3/4 tsp for the maintenance doses. Gantrisin should not be given to infants under 2 months of age.

    Do not take Sulfamethoxazole, Trimethoprim, Phenazopyridine, or Zotrim, if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or expect to become pregnant unless instructed by your doctor. This medication is not approved for use in children. It may increase risk of liver or kidney disease and skin reactions or bone marrow suppression in elderly patients. If you are allergic to any of the medication’s ingredients or have had an allergic reaction to sulfonamide in the past, do not take this medication. Zotrim should not be confused with the weight loss drug Zotrim.

    Xifaxan can cause side effects including mild itching, headache, stomach pain, gas, bloating, nausea, vomiting, constipation, rectal muscle spasms, and frequent bowel movements. If these side effects continue, or your traveler's diarrhea doesn't clear up in a few days, your doctor might suggest an alternate antibiotic. If side effects become severe or you show sign of infection, see your doctor right away. If you develop an allergic reaction to Xifaxan, seek emergency help. An allergic reaction can cause trouble breathing, swelling in your face and tongue, and itching or rash.
