Dosage Calculations

  1. I passed my dosage calculation test...yay!!!! I did make A STUPID mistake...I mean really a silly mistake and took another exam the next morning consisting of two similar questions to the one I messed up on and passed. I found that the only problem I had was not reading slow and rushing. Funny that I got all of the complicated math questions right and the one that I got wrong was similar to this.

    The patient is ordered 150mg Zoloft p.o.
    Your supply is 75mg tabs Zoloft
    How many tablets do you need to administer?

    OMG so easy right????????

    well instead of 2 tabs I wrote 2mg :trout:

    READ OVER YOUR ANSWERS CAREFULLY SO YOU DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID!!!!!!
