Amoxil 250mg/5ml Days Supply Answer
by: David

First, figure the total amount of doses:

It's given three times daily for 10 days, so this equals 30 doses.

Each dose is 5ml.

So to find the total quantity to dispense, we multiply 30 doses by 5ml, which equals 150ml.

We would dispense a 150ml bottle of the Amoxicillin 250mg/5ml.
