How much paracetamol should I give my child?

The dose of paracetamol is based on a child’s weight and not their age. Weigh your child and use the calculator below to calculate their correct dose.

Note: this calculator was developed specifically for Healthify. It does not collect or record any personal data, and all calculations are done on your own computer, not on our servers.

If you are giving paracetamol to your child, and are unsure of how much to give, always check with your pharmacist. Read more about paracetamol for children

Disclaimer: Calculations must be re-checked and should not be used alone to guide patient care, nor should they substitute for clinical judgement.
