Multiply the Maximum allowed daily by days supply
by: David

Figure the product of 3 (tablets daily, at a maximum) and 21 (the days supply we have to work with from the insurance) to equal 63 tablets. The maximum quantity allowed from the prescription insurance company is 63 tablets.

Thanks for your question!
