Dose of drugs

Dose of drugs

Dose is the amount of a DRUG a person takes or receives at a single time. A dose falls within a recommended therapeutic range for the drug, the person’s condition, and the person’s personal health circumstances (including age and gender). An excess of this amount is an OVERDOSE, which can have serious and even fatal consequences.
