Dosis, Praebium. The quantity of any substance, which ought to form part of compound medicine, or ought to be exhibited singly, to produce a desired effect. Many circumstances influence the doses of medicine. Women require smaller doses, as general principle, than men. Habit has great effect, as well as climate, age, and idiosyncrasy: all these, and other circumstances, must be taken into account; and every general rule on the subject will be found to have numerous exceptions. Some of the mechanical physicians laid it down as a rule, that the doses of medicines must always be as the square of the constitution! - A matter not easy of calculation.
