  • USAGE

    To quickly replace fluids and electrolytes lost during diarrhea and vomiting to help prevent dehydration in infants and children; for maintenance of water and electrolytes following corrective parenteral therapy for severe diarrhea.

    • Balanced electrolytes to replace diarrheal stool losses and provide maintenance requirements.

    • Unflavored liquid form available for young infants; fruit-flavored, bubble gum-flavored and grape-flavored liquids formulated with improved taste to enhance compliance in older infants and children.
    • Plastic liter bottles are resealable and allow easy measuring and pouring.
    • 8-fl-oz cherry and apple flavors; single-serving size is easy for children to hold and drink.
    • Freezer Pops (2.1 fl oz Pedialyte per sleeve) are available in multiple flavors to encourage compliance with fluid intake recommendations for children 1 year of age and older.
    • Widely available in grocery, drug and discount stores.

     * Administration Guide does not apply to infants less than 1 week of age. For children over 4 years, maintenance intakes may exceed 2 liters daily. If there is vomiting or fever, or if diarrhea continues beyond 24 hours, consult the child's physician.
    ** Fluid intake is total fluid requirement from oral electrolyte solution, formula or other fluids, but does not take into account ongoing stool losses. Fluid loss in the stool should be replaced by consumption of an extra amount of Pedialyte equal to stool losses, in addition to fluid maintenance requirement in this Administration Guide. Pedialyte Freezer Pops are to be used with Pedialyte Oral Electrolyte Maintenance Solution or other appropriate fluids to help prevent dehydration.
