8 Days Supply
by: David

So let's do some math. We have a 12 fluid ounce bottle. There is 30ml per fluid ounce.

Multiply 12 X 30 and we have 360ml.

Now, convert tablespoons to MLs. There are 15ml per tablespoon.

Now, figure out the total daily ML used: 1 tablespoonful (15ml) X 3 (three times daily) and we come up with 45ml used per day.

Next, we divide 360ml (total quantity of Rx) by 45ml (total used per day) and we come up with 8.

This prescription for liquid medication will last 8 full days if taken as prescribed.

Thank you for your question!
