Dr. Bartles has written an order for 375 mg of Amoxil for his patient, Jonathan Becker. The medication is to be given every 8 hours. Troubled Terry used the formula method to calculate the amount to administer in teaspoons. Here is his work: D = 375 Q = 5 H = 250 375 x 5 = A 250 7.5 = A Terry will administer 7.5 teaspoons to Jonathan which Terry feels is too much. Answer the following questions to help Troubled Terry. Are the numbers in the correct place in the formula method? Are the calculations correct? What has Troubled Terry forgotten to do? How many teaspoons should be given to Jonathan?
