a dose of beclomethasone inhalant is 200mcg twice a day. the commercial inhaler delivers 50mcg per inhalation and contains 200 inhalations.how many inhalers should be dispensed to a patient if a 60-day supply is prescribed?

At 50 mcg per inhalation, 200 mcg bid (twice daily) would require 8 inhalations per day, 4 inhalations each time.

Divide 8 into 200 inhalations per inhaler to find out how many days one inhaler would last. Then divide that number into 60 days.

Since inhalers are not supplied in fractions, round up to the nearest whole number to cover the 60-day period.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
