    I am not that familiar with benzathene penicillin G, but it is only supposed to be given every 48 to 72 hours, as opposed to procaine pen G which can be given daily for 4 days. I would probably give 1/4 ml every 2 days for only 2 doses. You may find more info by doing a search at the top of this page for durapen or benzathene penicillin g.
