Am I headed in the right direction (Pharm Problems)

Posted

Order: Dilantin 0.3 Gram IM

Available: Dilantin 200mg per 3 ml

How many ml(s) should be given for each dose?

This is what I came up with...wasn't sure if I could divide the available dose or not.

0.3 gram IM = 300 mg

200 mg/2 = 100mg and 3 ml/ 2 = 1.5 ml therefore 4.5 ml(s) should be given each dose

any guidance would be greatly appreciated.:confused:
