## Dosage Calculation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the dosage from the weight and dosage rate.

Total Dosage = Weight * Dosage Rate

Variables:

- Total Dosage is the amount of medication needed (mg)
- Weight is the weight of the patient (kg)
- Dosage Rate is the rate of dosage per kilogram (mg/kg)

To calculate the dosage, multiply the weight by the dosage rate to get the total dosage needed.

## What is Dosage Calculation?

Dosage calculation is the process of determining the appropriate amount of medication based on the patient’s weight and the prescribed dosage rate. This ensures that the patient receives the correct amount of medication for effective treatment and avoids under or overdosing.

## How to Calculate Dosage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the dosage using the given formula:

- First, determine the weight of the patient in kilograms.
- Next, determine the prescribed dosage rate in milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg).
- Use the formula from above: Total Dosage = Weight * Dosage Rate.
- Finally, calculate the total dosage by multiplying the weight by the dosage rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.
