Usual dosage of this medicine in adults is 1-3 grams along with honey, once or two times a day, before or after food.
So, in a child of 5 years age, definitely the dose will be lower. It can be between 1 – 2 grams per day, along with a teaspoon of honey. Because Talisadi Churna contains some amount of sugar, children will like the taste, especially when it is mixed with honey. Based on the doctor’s advice, it can be given for a period of 2 – 3 weeks.
But it is always advised to consult an Ayurvedic physician before taking any Ayurvedic medicine. Dosage and duration can only be decided perfectly by a qualified Ayurvedic physician.
