E-DRUG: Metronidazole in newborns and infants

>From MIMS Africa, 1997 (No. 5), I obtained the following information.
Metronidazole: 500mg/100ml; i.v. infusion.  Anaerobic infection: 7.5 mg/kg
three times daily i.v.
Adults and children over 12 yrs: 500 mg eight hourly at a rate of 5 ml/min.
 
Children under 12 yrs: 7.5 mg/kg infused as for adults.

I hope this is some help.
