We sort your medication into clearly labeled, individual packs so you can be sure you're taking the right dose at the right time.

Virazole Dosage

Your doctor will determine the dose your child should receive. The medication is given using a device called a small particle aerosol generator (SPAG-2). The generator creates a fine mist that contains the medication, which the child breathes in through a special hood, facemask, or oxygen tent. The treatment usually lasts 3 to 7 days.

Virazole is usually given by a health care professional in a hospital.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. It is important that Virazole be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not change the way that your child is receiving the medication without consulting your doctor. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that your child is receiving the medication without consulting your doctor.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
