Directions for Use

Use PEDIALYTE rather than juices, soft drinks, sports drinks, or water to adequately replace fluids and electrolytes lost during diarrhea.

Refer to Dosage Chart to restore fluid and electrolytes lost in diarrhea and vomiting. PEDIALYTE should be offered frequently in amounts tolerated. Total daily intake should be adjusted to meet individual needs, based on thirst and response to therapy.

The usual daily dose of PEDIALYTE is 100-150 mL/kg or approximately 1.5-2.5 Freezer Pops/kg. For children older than 4 years of age, maintenance intakes may exceed 2 litres/day (32 or more Freezer Pops).

For children under 2 years of age, consult a doctor prior to using PEDIALYTE.

Once opened, PEDIALYTE (1 L container) should be refrigerated and used within 48 hours.

 

Pedialyte Freezer Pops

Although PEDIALYTE Freezer Pops flavours are best when frozen, they also taste great in liquid form. To help meet the required dosage, chill and consume in liquid form as an alternate to freezing, or mix equal quantities of liquid and frozen Freezer Pops in a blender as a special treat. Freezer Pops freeze best when removed from the carton. Freeze pops before separating. If using in liquid form, separate carefully to prevent leaking. When Freezer Pops are stored at room temperature, avoid excessive heat. Do not use past expiry date. Discard unused portion and do not reuse plastic sleeves.
