Before dispensing, how can you check the prescribed dose is suitable using the BNF app?

To check the dose in the BNF app, you go to the ‘drugs’ area and navigate to the ‘indication and dose’ section from the menu pane (1). You see that 50mg is a suitable dose for ED, to be taken 1 hour before sexual activity (2). By going back to the menu pane, you can check all of the other sections in this monograph and read the other relevant sections for further information on cautions, contra-indications and prescribing in hepatic and renal impairment (3). You are also able to check all of the medicinal forms that are available to dispense to the patient, as well as checking the NHS price.
