What is the dosage of thiamine given and how many times a day for polio?
Fortified b complex.... must have 100mg/ml of b1 thiamine in it. 4cc per 100lbs. Every six hours a day until symptoms go away.

If you are not positive it is polio or listeriosis... might want to treat for both since the treatment is very similar. List adds a penicillian to the treatment.

We do 500mg of thiamine for polio regardless of weight every 6 hours.
Dexamethasone ( 1 cc per 20# IM once a day) or Banamine ( 1 cc per 100# sub Q once a day for 3 days)for brain swelling.
Penicillin at 1 cc per 10# every 6 hours
This is on a 24 hour clock.

ALSO: treatment is done every 6 hours until at least 24 hours after all symptoms have passed. Best to them decrease frequency and ween off meds...
