Skipping doses of Ilvitrim for my baby.

What happens if you skip days without giving the baby the Ilvitrim suspension?
Hi, how are you doing?
Is there a reason you have been missing doses of Ilvitrim?
Ilvitrim is an antibiotic. It is used as a prophylactic in babies to prevent an infection, instead of having to treat an infection.
Are you regularly skipping doses? As Ilvitrim is an antibiotic you need to be taking the medication as prescribed – this is usually daily. Missing doses means the medication will not work as well and increases the risk of getting an infection that becomes resistant to this antibiotic.
