 Jul 08, 2017 Rating 4 Days Supply, However... by: David First, find the maximum the person can take per day: 10ml times 3 doses = 30ml max per day. Then divide the total amount (120) by the max daily amount (30) and you get 4 days. The days supply for this cough syrup is 4 days. HOWEVER, some liquid cough syrup has maximum daily doses, for instance, Robitussin with Codeine has a maximum daily dose of 120mg (of the Codeine component). When figuring days supply, remember that there may be ingredient/drug specific maximums that come into play here. Another example is Tylenol. A person should not take more than 4,000mg or 4 grams per day. For the geriatric population, it may be closer to 3,000mg or 3 grams. When figuring days supply, these maximums need to be taken into account and factored into this calculation. Thanks for the question!
