Hi. Dr Hayat here. Welcome to JA
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 15 days ago.

You can safely give 10 milligrams at one time, even 20.

Gave another 2.5ml but pain has got worse since taking it

What else can I do. Prefer to see in writing as might misunderstand over phone as panicking a bit
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 15 days ago.
Need to give another 5ml..
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 15 days ago.

Any better?

Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 15 days ago.

If it doesn't get better even with the above dose then I would suggest to please call 111 and ask for a home visit or if possible take the patient to the A&E as he should be seen by a Dr before any further treatment.
