You know the available dose in the market is 125mg/5ml. What is expected of you to input in the dose is 125mg/5ml. Then at the provision for pharmacist comment you will write 100mg 12hourly for 5 days which is. 4mls 12hourly for 5 days. You are expected to calculate it for the patient. If you don't follow these steps, your patient wont be able to send drug to our pharmacy partners.
