Hello. I’m Sam, and I’m a Pharmacist that has a passion for the practice of Pharmacy.
Our profession is growing by leaps and bounds each and every day. And our growth in the healthcare community can only fully take shape by how well we train our pharmacy techs to help us fulfill our daily duties and responsibilities to both patients and the community.
Thus, my blog.. This blog on pharmacy and management is a collection of my thoughts, opinions, and lecture materials from the pharmacy tech class that I teach. If you have questions or concerns for me, just find me on LinkedIn.
Session 2 was successful. Six students completed this non-credit course and did well. They are now prepared to become registered pharmacy technicians and begin the process of becoming functional/capable assistants to practicing Pharmacists in a community pharmacy setting.
How many ml’s must be dispensed for 30 day supply?300ml

Would it be appropriate to dispense a 30 day supply? No, the stability is only 28 days, but to keep compounding simple, we will use a round number and dispense 300ml.
How many tablets will we need to compound this prescription? 10mg/ml x 5ml = 50mg/dose x 2 doses/day =100mg/day x 30 days = 3000mg. To compound we will use 300mg tablets. 3000mg/300mg/tablet = 10 tablets will be used to compound.
