A patient is prescribed 0.25mg of digoxin. Dosage available is 62.5 Mcgs. How many tablets is this?

Hi, Nick, 62.5mcgs = 0.625mg x5 = 0.25mg, but this MUST be verified by the prescribing doctor or your pharmacist.

Hi Wildcat, sorry to be pedantic (just a tiny math error) but it is 4 x 0.0625mg = 0.25mg

Thanks for getting back to me with your answers, Guys. I can see now how this adds up, I thought it was 4 tablets.
Kind Regards,
