Drug Dosage and Administration

The dose is the amount of drug taken at any one time. This can be expressed as the weight of drug (e.g. 250 mg), volume of drug solution (e.g. 10 mL, 2 drops), the number of dosage forms (e.g. 1 capsule, 1 suppository) or some other quantity (e.g. 2 puffs).The dosage regimen is the frequency at which the drug doses are given. Examples include 2.5 mL twice a day, one tablet three times a day, one injection every four weeks. The total daily dose is calculated from the dose and the number of times per day the dose is taken. The route of administration is the way the dosage form is given. Common routes of administration include oral, rectal, inhalation, nasal and topical. The optimal dosage is the dosage that gives the desired effect with minimum side effects. There are many factors taken into consideration when deciding a dose of drug - including age of the patient, weight, sex, ethnicity, liver and kidney .
