Measuring The Drug Using A Spoon?
Night. Sorry, I want to ask for 2/3 spoonfuls of the drug,
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the measuring spoon of medicine only has 2 lines, 1 measuring spoon (5 ml) and half measuring spoon (2.5 ml). You are not advised to give drugs outside of these 2 measurement lines because the amount of drug given is uncertain (it should not be approximately 2/3 measuring spoons in the middle between 1/2 and 1 measuring spoon). If indeed the amount of drug needed cannot be written in the amount of half a measuring spoon or one measuring spoonful, then the doctor will usually write with certainty how many milligrams of drug dosage is needed and the doctor (or the pharmacist can) will change the dose of the milligram in the dose of the drug in syrup or drop shape. The measurements in milliliters are far more accurate than the measurements in medicine spoons (half, quarter, two thirds, or one tablespoon of medicine).
If indeed your doctor or the pharmacy where you buy the drug gives a dose in the form of 2/3 tablespoons of the drug, then you should ask back to the pharmacy where you bought the medicine for how many milliliters of the drug is needed and you must use a pipette to get an accurate amount of the drug.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
