Select the sentence which is correctly punctuated, spaced, and capitalized.
A) He was prescribed: Carafate 1 g 4 times daily, 40 minutes after each meal, Reglan 5 mg at bedtime, aspirin p.r.n.
B) He was prescribed Carafate 1 g 4 times daily, 40 minutes after each meal; Reglan 5 mg at bedtime; aspirin p.r.n.
C) He was prescribed; Carafate 1 g 4 times daily, 40 minutes after each meal, Reglan 5 mg at bedtime, aspirin p.r.n.

I answered C but think it could also be A also

    No colon after a verb, remember?

    So then it would be a because B is not right

  • Grammar and punctuation -

    B is correct. A would be correct if that colon were removed.

    Are you saying you submitted your answer and were told that A is correct???

    No I was making a study guide type deal, I did not think that the semi colons were needed (Carafate 1 g 4 times daily, 40 minutes after each meal; Reglan 5 mg at bedtime; aspirin p.r.n.)I thought the commas were, to me this makes no sense going from a comma to semi colons?

    I know. It's not always an easy concept, and the website I usually refer to for excellent explanations of this is not functioning right now ... it's in Connecticut and is no doubt out of commission because of the superstorm. =(

    There should not be any punctuation between the verb and its direct object(s), in this case the list/series of medications. When you have a series, though, in which each element has commas and/or other punctuation, then you use semicolons to separate them. This is why the semicolons in B are correctly used.
