Child's dose math/ tablets (2)
I don't even understand where to begin! lol
1)A child's dose for cefadroxil is 30 mg/kg body weight once a day for 14 days. What is the smallest bottle that will provide enough medication to last 14 days if the child weighs 44 pounds?
2)The doctor changes a prescription for 150 ml of amoxicillin 250 mg/ 5 ml to 250 mg chewable tablets. How many many chewable tablets should be dispensed?
I'm sure I'm just confusing myself... I was thinking 30 for the second answer by dividing 250 mg by 5 ml and I was right, but I just wanted make sure I was doing it the right way.
