A patient needs to take 625 mg of ibuprofen twice daily. The pills in the bottle are each 250. \rm mg. How many pills does the patient need to take each time she wants the 625 mg dosage? Assume that these pills are scored and can be cut in half if necessary.
2 1/2 pills = 625 mg dosage. Taken twice daily = 5 pills/day (1300 mg/day).
Do Not exceed 2400mg per day or you'll poison the patient. Previous answer is wright.
