Doses of Drugs in their Primary Form.

In the following table drugs are given in solution with water in the proportion stated. This, however, is only to serve as a guide and the physician must use his own judgment as to dose and time of giving the medicine to his patients. Where two to four doses of medicine are taken a day it is best to take it about ten to twenty minutes before meals, and perhaps also before retiring.

Although triturations are given in solution in the table, many of them are often administered in powder form or in tablets.
