How do we determine dosage of drugs?
Dosage is the amount of drug that can be administered to a person without adverse side effects. Obviously, the dosage of the drug must be sufficient enough for the drug to ‘work.’
In other words, the best drugs require the least dosage to ‘work.’ The general trend is that if you increase the dosage of the drug, more side effects will occur.
*Again, drugs work in different ways. I use ‘work’ as a general term to define how a drug can produce its necessary effects to help an individual.
Drugs can be anti-inflammatory, antiviral, or vaccines, which all work in various ways. More about that later.
