Post a reply: Routine antibiotics in SAM children

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Dear all,
As per protocol we have to administer routine antibiotics (amox) for all SAM children including those without apparent signs of infection. I would like to know feasibility of using cephalosporins (1st generation cefalexin) over amoxicillin. It is an ongoing discussion within our medical team to use cefalexin, however we are not finding any reference stating use of other antibiotics and dosage of the same in SAM children. I would appreciate if someone can help us with any reference material for drugs in SAM children.
