AGENERASE oral solution contains 1.5% amprenavir. A pharmacist wished to change the drug concentration to 5 mg/ mL by using a diluent of polyethylene glycols. How many milliliters of the oral solution and how many milliliters of the diluent should be used to prepare 8 fluid- ounces of the mixture?
Asked by Jazmine Agent 6 months ago.
Its very important that when you quote a concentration in percentage, you state whether its mass/volume (m/v %) or volume/volume (v/v %). In your case, 1.5 % could either mean that there is 1.5 g of amprenavir per 100 mL of solution (1.5 % m/v) or it could mean that there is 1.5 mL of amprenavir per 100 mL of solution (1.5 % v/v). Since amprenavir is a solid, the concentration will be m/v but something for you to remember in the future. Always get your units correct :-). For your calculation, we know that we have 1.5 g per 100 mL (which is 15 mg/mL - I converted the grams to mg and divided by 100 to get the answer to per 1 mL) of solution. We want to convert that to 5 mg/mL. We also know that we need 236 mL (8 ounces) of the new solution. So we use the following equation: M1V1 = M2V2 where M1 is the initial concentration, in this case 15 mg/mL V1 is the volume we are trying to find. How much should we remove from the initial solution. M2 is the new concentration, in this case 5 mg/mL V2 is the new volume that we need, in this case 236 mL Now we solve for V1: V1 = (M2 x V2) / M1 = (5 mg/mL x 236 mL) / 15 mg/mL = 78.6 mL We now know that we need 78.6 mL of the initial solution. We also know that we need a final volume of 236 mL. So in order to calculate the amount of diluent needed we just subtract the volumes: vol of diluent = 236 mL - 78.6 mL = 157.4 mL Answered by Kathyrn Cardinali 6 months ago.

convert pt weight to kg: 97 lbs * kg/2.2 lbs = 44.1 kg calculate dose to be given TID: 17 mg/kg * 44.1 kg = 749.5 mg you have Agenerase 15 mg/mL on hand. use that to convert mg to mL: 749.5 mg * mL/15 mg = 49.97 mL for the label instructions, i would say "50 mL IV TID" i would put the label instructions in mL instead of mg because the medication is available as a solution and the person administering the medication just wants to know what volume to give. Answered by Alessandra Dirollo 6 months ago.
It tells you that in the problem -- "Agenerase 15mg/1 ml onhand" I'll check you. Actually when I did it your way I got different answers than you -- 97 lbs/2.2kg = 44.1 kg (44.09) 44.1kg x 17mg/1kg dose (single) = 749.7 (almost 750, not 748) 749.7x3 = 2249.1mg per DAY 2249.1mg (1ml/15mg) = 149.94 ml per DAY 149.94ml daily/3 doses = 49.98, or 50ml/dose.

OK you did the first part right but you didn't go far enough. One dose is 748mg and you have on hand Agenerase 15mg/ml.You would divide 748 by 15 giving you 49.9(round off to 50).So you would give 50mls for one dose. Answered by Akilah Esquilin 6 months ago.
Can a woman take birth control pills with diet pills and still have the pill be effective?
I am currently on loestrin24e and was wondering is there any research proving that the pill will not be effective if the person takes the pill also?
Asked by Kimberli Salina 6 months ago.
The birth control pill consists of hormones which essentially make your body think it is pregnant. Your ovaries will then not release an egg each month, meaning that sperm would have nothing to fertilize. Advantages- very effective when taken properly, can lessen PMS symptoms, lighten "period" bleedings Disadvantages- must remember to take a pill every day, at around the same time. some people experience other side effects. After you stop taking the pill, the extra hormones go away and you can become pregnant again. Your period does not go away completely, but it is more correctly called a "withdrawal bleed," since it is not a true period and is just a break in the hormone dose to allow your body to continue to regulate itself. The pill AND a condom is one of the most effective methods of preventing pregnancy! Perfect use of both methods is over 99% effective. Answered by Augustine Fedder 6 months ago.

Asked by Eddie Grillo 6 months ago.
For the past couple of days, I have been spotting slightly (pink when I wipe). My breasts have been a bit more tender than normal. They're large, and often are, anyway, but like I said, a bit more than normal. Other pregnancy symptoms don't count mostly, since they're typical of me, anyway. I pee a lot, sleep a lot, etc. Because of the spotting, my bf worried a bit I may be pregnant, which I didn't even think of, since I'm always careful with my birth control. I'm on the pill, Lo Ovral. To see if I did anything wrong, I researched a bit and found this: Answered by Leonor Dattilo 6 months ago.
Some drugs can make Lo Ovral less effective, which may result in pregnancy. Before using Lo Ovral, tell your doctor if you are using any of the following drugs: * acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ascorbic acid (vitamin C); * phenylbutazone (Azolid, Butazolidin); * modafinil (Provigil); * dexamethasone (Decadron, Hexadrol); * an antibiotic; * seizure medicines such as phenytoin (Dilantin), carbamazepine (Tegretol), oxcarbazepine (Trileptal), topiramate (Topamax), and others; * a barbiturate such as amobarbital (Amytal), butabarbital (Butisol), mephobarbital (Mebaral), secobarbital (Seconal), or phenobarbital (Luminal, Solfoton); or * HIV medicines such as amprenavir (Agenerase), atazanavir (Reyataz), indinavir (Crixivan), saquinavir (Invirase), fosamprenavir (Lexiva), ritonavir (Norvir), and others.

I knew about the prescription stuff, but what I'm worried about is the tylenol (I take it usually for headaches and neck-aches) and the Vitamin C (which I take 1000 mg a day to boost my immune system).

Sweetie, don't count on just the pill. I have 3 kids and was on birth control with all 3. Thank the Lord I was married when we got pregnant and I din't have to worry. The best advice I can give you is take the test and see that way you can make plans on how to care for yourself and the baby. You don't want to be pregnant and keep taking the pill. Hope that helps!! Good Luck and God Bless!! Answered by Mandy Maxey 6 months ago.
The only way to be sure is to go see your doctor. i dont see how Tylenol would affect the effectiveness, but im no expert in the pills. I do know that the lower the hormonal level, the higher the incidence is to get pregnant. Wait a little bit and go have a Doctor do a blood test. The blood may just be spotting which is common while on the pill. Best of luck to you. Answered by Tasha Wasinger 6 months ago.
Did you just get on this pill? Because spotting is a side effect. I got spotting for the first time at different occassions within 3 months of getting on a new pill. If this is a new pill, the fact that your breasts are tender could mean that your breasts are growing because some pills make breasts grow! I doubt it that you are pregnant, but why don't you just take a pregancy test to find out the truth? Answered by Allegra Whiting 6 months ago.
Well have you done any of those things to make it not work? As with all birth control pills you gotta be careful not to take any other pills thats might cancel out that one and think really hard...do you think you had sex when you were ovulating? that is 2 weeks after your period if so then there could be a chance because other than that you cant concieve unless you ovulate Answered by Miquel Kinghorn 6 months ago.
Cough syrup can make your birth control less effective, any kind of medicine can. basically, wait til you miss your period before worrying that you're pregnant, take a test then. also, if you've only been on the pill a couple months, your body takes time to adjust to it, so you can spot at random times in your cycle Answered by Mohammad Lomago 6 months ago.
i wouldn't get too worried about the spotting. i'm on birth control and about once a month i'll have a little pink as well. its nothing to worry about... just a side affect of birth control. the breast tenderness could also just be another side affect. expecially if you are spotting, that means that ur body has those hormones actively, so it would make sense for your breasts to be tender and have spotting at the same time. i wouldnt get too worried at this point! Answered by Thu Bar 6 months ago.
I'd say you should invest in a pregnancy test, just to be safe. If you recently switced birth control (method or brand), spotting tends to be a common side effect, but if you've been on it a while, taking a test can't hurt. Answered by Elna Mitrani 6 months ago.
Sometimres your body starts to not work correctly with the current pill, I was on one for about 8 months and started spotting, it turned out that the hormones in my body didn't like it and it was not strong enough for me.

Vitamin C may raise levels of estrogen in the blood. You will have to take at least 1g to have that happen which is a lot. Tylenol is affected by the hormones and may lower the blood levels of acetaminophen. Neither of them lower the effectiveness of the Nuva Ring. Your doctor can verify this with you. You can read the link below that will tell you what every interaction for each drug is. It is for the pill but the drug interations are the same for the Nuva Ring. They contain the same hormones.

Asked by Jorge Discenza 6 months ago.
Drugs affected by grapefruit juice Grapefruit and grapefruit juice have the potential to interact with numerous drugs. A number of organic compounds, identified as furanocoumarin derivatives, interfere with the hepatic and intestinal enzyme cytochrome P450 isoform CYP3A4 and are therefore primarily responsible for the interaction. However, bioactive compounds in grapefruit juice may also interfere with P-glycoprotein and organic anion transporting polypeptides (OATPs) either increasing or decreasing bioavailability of a number of drugs.
