Dosing confusion for liquid Tamiflu?

Image
Confusing directions on liquid suspensions of the antiviral drug Tamiflu may inadvertantly cause parents to give their children either too little of the drug, impeding the child's recovery, or a toxic overdose, physicians warned today in a letter published in the online version of the New England Journal of Medicine. Prescriptions for the drug are often written with doses in fractions of a teaspoon, but the dropper packaged with the drug is marked in milligrams, requiring a difficult conversion of units, said Dr. Ruth Parker of the Emory University School of Medicine, lead author of the paper.

"It's an egregious error that there is a conflict in the prescription labeling instructions and the dosage device that comes in the exact same box," said co-author Dr. Michael Wolf of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. "It's incredibly confusing to parents."
