The following applies to the presentation of any component part of the dosage instruction;
Always express units of measure using the full description, e.g.
Important: The above principal does not apply to units of measure as part of pre-coordinated dm+d concept descriptions, e.g.
Ramipril 5mg capsules.
Always express a time-based unit of measure in the plural when applicable, e.g.
Do not express other units of measure in the plural as this introduces complications with units such as
microgram per millilitreor
microgram per kilogram per hour.
Where multiple statements are allowed, e.g. when or event structures, then separate each statement with a comma plus whitespace. Replace the last comma separating the final two statements with the word " and ", e.g.
on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
