How much Pedialyte will rehydrate me?
If you or your child has lost a lot of fluid because of diarrhea or vomiting, you may need 4–8 servings (32 to 64 ounces) of Pedialyte a day to prevent dehydration. If you get sick for more than a few days, you should talk to your doctor. The most common side effect of ORS is dry mouth. Dry mouth can be a sign of a serious condition, such as a heart attack or stroke.
If you have any of the following signs or symptoms, call your health care provider right away: dry, cracked or bleeding gums; a sore throat; or a runny or stuffy nose. These signs and symptoms may also be signs of other serious conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, kidney disease or liver disease. Call your healthcare provider if you notice any other symptoms that may be related to your condition.

How much Pedialyte can I give my?
The amount of oral rehydration solution given to infants is based on their age, as follows: infants 0 to 6 months old: 30 ml to 90 ml every hour. Every 8 hours is the age of 2 years and older. Children under 6 years of age should not be given more than 1.5 liters (1.2 quarts) of Pedialysate® per day.
For infants and young children, it is recommended that they receive a minimum of 2.0 litre (6.8 quarted) every 6 hours and a maximum of 3 litres (9.1 quarters) or more every 24-hour period. If a child is not able to drink enough to meet the recommended daily amount, he or she should continue to receive the maximum amount recommended for the age and weight of the child.
Can I drink 2 bottles of Pedialyte a day?
To maintain proper hydration, 4–8 servings (32 to 64 fl oz) of Pedialyte may be needed per day. If consumption needs are greater than 2 liters per 24 hour period, you should consult your doctor.
What happens if you drink a whole bottle of Pedialyte?
The sugar/salt concentration in your bloodstream won’t be affected by pedialyte because it is made so that you can drink as much as you want. You will have to drink more water to get the same amount of sugar, if you drink too much.
If you do not drink enough water, your blood sugar will be too low for your body to function properly. This can lead to hypoglycemia, which is a condition in which the body does not have enough glucose in the blood to carry out the normal functions of the brain and body. It can also cause seizures, coma, and even death.
Can you have too many electrolytes?
Too much sodium can cause dizziness, vomiting, and diarrhea, and too many electrolytes can be bad. If you have too much potassium, it can cause heart arrhythmia, nausea, and an irregular heartbeat. And too much calcium can lead to osteoporosis and kidney stones.
The good news is that you don’t have to worry about these electrolyte imbalances if you follow a healthy diet and exercise routine. In fact, you may even be able to lower your blood pressure and improve your overall health.
