However INRstar will offer you all the other schedules that include tablets you haven’t selected for your patient that and create the correct dose, INRstar will also have on this list alternative doses with tablets you have and haven’t selected.
E.g. the suggested dose ends in 0.8mg or 0.2mg meaning a 0.5mg tablet is needed to meet the correct dose.
The reason other tablet strengths appear when only certain strengths are ticked is when it is not possible to give the suggested dose
i.e. The suggested dose ends in 0.8 or 0.2 meaning a 0.5mg tablet is needed to meet the correct dose.
When this happens INRstar shows all other combinations of schedules including an alternative dose.
This is to give the user more flexibility.
When adding in a patient’s INR treatment you can click on current to use the last selected schedule.
