Directions for using Alvedon Suppositories 60mg:

1. Always look at the label on the box

  • To be used in children up to the age of 1 year.
  • The dosage should be based on your child’s age and weight i.e.
  • 3 months (5 kg) – 60 mg (1 suppository)
  • 1 year (10 kg) – 120 mg (2 suppositories)
  • These doses may be repeated up to a maximum of 4 times in 24 hours.
  • They should not be given more often than every 4 hours.
  • Infants under 3 months: One suppository (60 mg) is suitable for babies who develop a fever following immunisation at 2 months. Otherwise only use in babies aged less than 3 months on a doctor’s advice. If you are not sure how many suppositories to give your child, do not guess; ask your child’s doctor or a pharmacist.
  • Do not exceed the stated dose.


2. If your child needs to go to the toilet then ensure that they do so, and that the bowels are empty before they are given these suppositories.


3. Before using the suppository you may find it easier to lie your child on their front or side. Do whichever is more comfortable for your child.


4. Wash your hands then peel the wrapping apart to remove the suppository. Do not break the suppository before use.


5. Gently push the suppository into your child’s back passage, pointed end first. Then wash your hands.


6. Try to keep your child still for a minute or two. If your child needs to be given another suppository remove another one from the wrapper and insert it into your child's back passage as before. Once again you should try to keep your child still for a minute or two. Then wash your hands.


7. If you forget to give the suppositories, make sure that you give them to your child as soon as you remember, then go on as before. Don’t give your child a double dose next time.


8. Immediate medical advice should be sought in the event of an overdose, even if the child seems well, because of the risk of delayed, serious liver damage.
