Formulas for Calculating Medication Dosage. Basic Formula D -- x Q = X A. Where D (desired) is the dosage the physician ordered, A (available) is the dosage strength as stated on the medication label, and Q (quantity) is the volume in which the dosage strength is available (e.g. tablets, capsules, milliliters).

If the drug is one where dosage is calculated by weight, multiply the patient's weight by the dosage listed in the drug guide. For example, for a child weighing 10 kg taking a drug with a recommended dosage of 20 mg/kg/day, the daily dosage would be 10 kg x 20 mg/kg/day = 200 mg/day.

Dosage and calculation can be used for many things; including prescriptions, flow rate set up, and syringe draw up of medications. The dosage calculation is used to determine the amount of medication needed to administer medications.

The true heart of how to calculate drug dosage lies in figuring the mg/kg ratio. This is done by multiplying the base milligram dosage by the patient’s body weight in kilograms. In this way, drug manufacturers give medical personnel a base formula that allows them to individualize each dosage by the patient.
