Calculation Task 9
A patient is prescribed Tramadol 100mg four times a day, for one week. Tramadol is available as a 50mg tablet. How many tablets does the patient require in two weeks?
Each dose – Patient requires 2 tablets
Each day – Patient requires (2 x4) = 8 tablets
Each week – Patient requires (8 x 7) = 56 tablets
In two weeks, the patient requires 56 tablets, as he is only given a prescription for one week.
