Nasal Spray calculation of quantity
Fluticasone Propionate nasal spray 50 MCG. Directions say, use two sprays in each nostril once daily for 30 days.There are 50mcg per spray. Therefore, 4 sprays daily multiplied by 50mcg per spray, equals 200 mcg needed. One bottle contains 120 metered sprays and 16g net fill weight. Ndc 60505-0829-1. Pharmacy gave 1 bottle with a Qty of 16.
Should the Qty have been 32 and should the patient have received two bottles?
Liquid cannot be split open to give exact amount and the error is on the side of more rather than give the patient less meds than required by the doctor. Just a side note, one refill is allowed. Thank you.
