People are saying it only gives dosing for three meds, that is all you really should be giving your child without a script and/or a doctor's recommendation. To the person who complained that it won't give dosing without weight... WEIGHT IS USED FOR PEDIATRIC DOSING OF A LOT OF VARIOUS MEDICATIONS! There is no 'creative' way. It goes through explanations because a lot of information people think is true, in reality sometimes it is not. It is important to know why you are giving a medicine to your child to see if you actually need to give it! Seems like a great skill to have for parents.
