Hi,

Yes you can get it in more concentrated preparation but depending on the dosage it may be unmeasurable, so for very small doses it may give you 0.5mls for example, in which case you would be better to give the bigger volume because the dose would be more accurate

He鈥檚 getting 5mg so I know it would probably be 0.3mls which I could get 1ml syringes. I鈥檝e mixed it tonight with 1ounce formula just to get him to take it as he was sick when I gave him it 馃槙

Ah poor thing, it鈥檚 probably much more expensive but you could ask your gp and see what they say x

Grasping at straws how long will the ranitidine take to work? He鈥檚 vomiting more on it that he was before and last night was awful he was so unsettled and hardly slept 馃槶馃槶馃槶
