Hi this is a liquid and my measuring cup is in ml. Can you tell me the dosage for that? I understand that you are not advising me to use this drug. Thanks.
You're more than welcome.I'll need to know the concentration of the liquid you have to determine a dosage (which should be indicated on the label). In other words, how many milligrams are in one ml?Deb
The liquid is called IC IOPHEN-C NR Liquid. It's supposed to be robitussin and codeine and the human dosage is 1-2 teaspoons.
Unfortunately, I can't figure out a dosage without knowing how many milligrams of codeine are in 1 ml or 1 teaspoon.When I look up this drug, it appears there are different concentrations which will be important to know in determining the dosage.
Look for something like:
200mg/5 mL or 100 mg/5 mL or 225 mg/5 mL
