How To Calculate The Antibiotic Dose That Is Entered Through An IV?
Hello doctor, good morning, r nI want to ask, what is the usual dose of ciprofloxacin infusion in a woman aged 66 years and weighs 62 kg with a combination of ceftriaxone 2 g / 24 hours empirically with a diagnosis of sepsis pneumonia and type 2 diabetes?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We apologize in advance, but we cannot convey the dosage of medicine through this forum. This is done to avoid inappropriate drug use, misunderstanding of dosages, drug abuse, and unwanted side effects because there are not limited number of people who can access this page, from various backgrounds and educational backgrounds. Even though sometimes the dosage of drugs is not fixed, and is adjusted to the disease, age, and medical history so far. So even for over-the-counter drugs, we usually mention following the rules for use listed on the packaging, not directly conveying the dosage.
Moreover, in your question, the two drugs that you mentioned are antibiotics whose use must be very careful, based on proven indications and cannot be bought or used carelessly.
So if you have a medical background, we should ask your seniors for advice, especially those from internal medicine specialists. But if not, if you doubt the dosage given by your doctor to you or your family, then you just need to remind the doctor who gave the treatment, so that he makes sure the calculation and treatment are not wrong. For the rest, your doctor will have their own reasons. Once again, apologize for our limitations in answering this question, that's all.
