How do I calculate the doasage of Amoxicillin suspension 125mg/5ml if the dose ordered is 3/4 tsp Po Bid?

  • math -

    3/4 tsp Po Bid
    First convert tsp to ml using
    1 tsp = 5 ml.
    so 3/4 tsp = (3/4)*5 = 3.75 ml.

    So the prescription calls for
    3.75 ml. of a suspension 125 mg/5ml

    125 mg : 5 ml
    X mg : 3.75 ml

    By cross multiplication, we get
    X=3.75*125/5=93.75 mg (twice a day)
