Dose Codes

When entering dosage codes, the following shortcuts will produce the associated directions on a prescription; all drugs usually have an automatic default dosage which, in most cases, will be what is required. However all dosage instructions can be changed using the following two-digit alphanumerics.

For example

24 = Take two, 4 times/day
uw = use weekly
