How many capsules should the nurse give for the morning medication if the doctor ordered 2G of Dilantin but the medication is available in 100Mg?
20 caps would equal the 2 grams.......but I would verify the dose and be sure that "Grams" is what the dose reads because it could be units of phenytoin....or all together could be a drip of FOSphenytoin!! Different drug in IV form....double check....and Dilantin comes in liquid form also....crummy orange-ish flavor but may be easier than 20 caps!
