In administering medicines, it is always well to begin with the smallest dose mentioned and gradually increase until the desired influence is produced.
The dose given should not only vary with the drug, but also with the condition, age and sex of the person.
In giving medicine to children, care should be taken as to the amount administered. (See foregoing table."
It is of course necessary in all cases that the strength and condition of the patient should be taken into consideration. Especially where powerful drugs are used, it will be better to give smaller doses than mentioned in the table.
