The drop is a unit of measure of volume, the amount dispensed as one drop from a dropper or drip chamber. It is often used in giving quantities of liquid drugs to patients, and occasionally in cooking.
The volume of a drop is not well-defined: it depends on the device and technique used to produce the drop, on the strength of the gravitational field, and on the density and the surface tension of the liquid.
There are several exact definitions of a "drop":
DISCRIPTION- Supplementing the diet with vitamins, minerals, and calcium.
Avail is a multivitamin and mineral combination. It increases the amount of calcium and vitamins in the body.
MEDICAL USES- This medicine is a combination of many different vitamins and minerals that are normally found in foods and other natural sources.
Multivitamins and minerals are used to provide substances that are not taken in through the diet. Multivitamins and minerals are also used to treat vitamin or mineral deficiencies caused by illness, pregnancy, poor nutrition, digestive disorders, certain medications, and many other conditions.
Multivitamins and minerals may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
DOSAGES- Never take more than the recommended dose of multivitamins and minerals. Avoid taking more than one vitamin/mineral product at the same time unless your doctor tells you to. Taking similar products together can result in a vitamin overdose or serious side effects.
SIDE-EFFECTS- Do not take this medication with milk, other dairy products, calcium supplements, or antacids that contain calcium. Calcium may make it harder for your body to absorb certain ingredients of the multivitamin.
Multivitamins and minerals can cause serious or life-threatening side effects if taken in large doses. Do not take more of this medication than directed on the label or prescribed by your doctor.
