im guessing it's mg/mL.. you need every 8 hours for 10 days.. 24hrsx10 days = 240 hrs 240hrs/8hrs=30 doses 100mg/mL and you need 300mg.. so 15mL is what you need per dose. so 30 doses x 15 mL = 450mL in total 150mL per bottle. so 450/150= 3 bottles 3 bottles x $600/bottle= $1800 you need 3 bottles and your total cost is $1800. ps. this is more math related than "health science" related
