Medication A Case Study

Decent Essays
After Doris was sent home with two types of medication, she should really read closely to what the bottle says. Medication A is to be taken every four hours by mouth and medication B is to be taken three times a day by mouth. Usually when some medication is three times a day, it has to be taken with food, that way it can be taken with meals. The medication that is every four hours probably will be okay taken on a empty stomach. Since these medications are liquid, the doctor will advise nothing to be ate or drank within 30 minutes of taking. Liquid medications are usually made for coating the throat/intestines. And of course, no alcohol and no operating machinery until Doris gets used to the side effects.
