Cleocin suspension, 150 mg tid for ten days. This suspension is only available in a concentration of 75mg/5ml, and the only available quantity is 100 ml bottles. How many bottles should you dispense?


Answer: Three bottles. At 75mg/5ml, you would need to have the patient take 10ml to get the 150mg dose. One 100ml bottle would then have 10 doses. The patient would need 30 doses (three times daily for 10 days (3x10=30.) 10 doses per bottle X 3 (100ml) bottles = 30 does. I hope this clarifies and answers this question for you.
