can you show me the easiest step to calculate this prescription.

ivonne in El Paso, Texas 29 months ago 
well what think the answer is, the physician wants the patient to take 500mg every 8 hours, and in the pharmacy we have 250mg/cap, that means that, the patient will be taking 2 capsules by mouth every 8 hours, ( 2 capsules is equivalent to 500mg).hope this helps.

prince07 in San Jose, California said: can you show me the easiest step to calculate this prescription. doctor wants 500mg and 100 capsules to be given to the patient. the sig is 250 mg by mouth every 8 hours, and pharmacy has 250mg per capsule. 250 +250 equals 500 mg, so 2 capsules equals 500mg, therefore the way it should be dispensed is by giving 2 capsules by mouth every 8 hours, total of 100 capsules.

I got this problem in my technician training program, I'd just like to double check myself for comprehension. Can someone solve this problem for me? Your pharmacy receives the following Prescription.
My answer is 7.5 tablets taking 1/4 tablet po qd for 30 days. Is this correct? If not, how should I go about solving this problem?

i have a question..and can you explain this ..on how i can get this answer.. A drug comes as 500/5ml concentration.
Can you explain on how i can do this math on this? thanks.

Let's find the active ingredient. 30 mL of 1 mg/mL concentration is equal to 30 mg of the active ingredient, (1 mg/mL * 30 mL = 30 mg). Use proportion to set the problem, (500 mg:5 mL::30 mg:x). Solve for "x" yields 0.3 mL.

Danettemed in Hinesville, Georgia said: How many 1tsp doses are in 1 qt of lactulose solution, USP 10g/15ml? This is a unit conversion problem. 1 qt = 480 mL, 1 tsp = 5 mL, 480/5 = 96 doses. There are 96 tsp doses in the 1 quart solution. 1 tsp dose contains 3.3 grams of active ingredient.

Juanita in Holly Springs, North Carolina said: Help with this question please!!! How much Furosemide is required to make 50 ml of Furosemide 10mg/ml syrup if you use the following formula? Use proportion to solve this problem. 4.8 g : X :: 0.010g : 1 mL, X = 480 mL. X is the total amount of liquid in the solution. The only adjustment to the formula is the addition of water, "qs". Using the formula, 4.8 g of furosemide in 120 mL of syrup and 360 mL of water makes a concentration of 10mg/mL furosemide syrup. If we did not have to follow the formula, then 50 mL of a 10 mg/mL furosemide concentration is equal to 500 mg of furosemide.

dmariet3 in Asheville, North Carolina said: I got this problem in my technician training program, I'd just like to double check myself for comprehension. Can someone solve this problem for me? The dose is 0.1 mg of Synthroid tablet. The prescription is for a total count of 30 tablets, which will last 30 days at the rate of consumption of a tablet per day. There are four 0.025 mg tablets for each daily dose; you need 120 of those tablets to fill the prescription.

paivir in Dumfries, United Kingdom said: I cannot get this solved using two different formulas, keep getting one of them wrong... This is a dilution problem. Use proportions to express the two different solutions in percentages; 0.025g:5mL::X:100mL, X=0.5, the concentrated solution is 0.5% codeine linctus. 0.015g:5mL::Y:100mL, Y=0.3, the diluted solution is 0.3% codeine linctus. The dilution formula is Q1*C1=Q2*C2, Q1*(0.5%)=(500mL)*(0.3%), Q1=300mL, you need 300 milliliters of the concentrated solution.

Danna in Mercer Island, Washington said: I am stuck on these 2 problems, and the formulas that I am using I don't believe are working to find the correct answer. Problem #1 is not written well at all. 500 mL of what was added to the 50% solution. I will give you some helpful hints in breaking down all those values. 4 fluid ounces is equal to 120 mL. 50% solution is equal to 50g/100mL. 4 fl oz of a 50% solution is equal to 120mL*50g/100mL=60g. Problem #2 is a dilution problem. Use Q1*C1=Qf*Cf with Qf=Q1+diluent; the diluent is the petrolatum. Qf=(25g)+(14g)=39g, (25g)*(0.2%)=(39g)*Cf, Cf=0.13%, the final percent concentration of hydrocortisone is 0.13%
