  1. How many ml’s must be dispensed for 30 day supply? 300ml
  2. What is the patient’s dose in milliliters? 5ml bid
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
