a med calls for 400mg/5ml, dispense 100ml. the dose is 40mg/kg/day the child weighs 44 lb. the sig reads _ tsp QID until gone. what would the tsp dose be? how many days will the script last?
100ml will contain 20 * 400 = 8000mg
child has to take 40 *44 =1760 mg per day
tsp dose = 1760/4 = 440 mg
It will last 8000/1760 = 4 and a half days
