You need to verify that a prescribed dose of Capoten (captopril) for a patient currently weighing 10 lbs is safe. The drug literature recommends a maximum of 6 mg/kg/day. The drug is administered in 4 divided doses over a 24-hour period. You determine that a maximum safe dose for this patient would be ___ mg per dose
Actually this is a non-professional forum whose members are not qualified to prescribe or recommend dosages. Also, I wonder if you may have made a typo... a 10lb patient would be a very small baby?
