  50 tablets ~ 15g do you think that toxic dose -> ?

Do you think Q pic about 3hrs of TOXIC dose or high therapeutic?
What happens to RC? You think what we have gone RA? If so what happens to pH? What happens to HCO3 + what would happen to K cycle & uncoupling OP? -> Are you gone have MA?

  @hello lol... the journey makes you a better Dr. Just work hard & always pay off and you definitely be better knowledgeable dr not like those I have seen in a slaughterhouse by medical errors in so called hospital. Enjoy your prep journey:) Good luck!

Q/Pic of randomized trial they to risk for dev GI SE using azithromycin compared with erythromycin in the treatment of pertussis in kidos.

GI effect adverse events were 3x (15/50 = 0.3) more common with erythromycin treatment than 5 kido (5/50 = 0.2) Azithromycin. Compliance with therapy was markedly better with azithromycin than with erythromycin in this study.
The difference in risk (NOT THE proportion) attributable to the intervention as compared to a control…
ARR -> difference in event rate between the control arm and the experimental arm.

Math 101 😊->
ARR = 0.3 – 0.1 = 0.2 should be your ans

You mention you done Goli/pathoma/kaplan & UW. If you have time do those nb old QS. I hope you took some online one (timed to see where you stand) ...
Best at the point where you are in my opinion; DO MORE QS & know FA cold & Understand fogy area.
One problem it seems you use many sources, not a good approach. Master one at least on the pathology side of the pic. I recall read article in journal science years ago, basically, they found that if you self test yourself is will do better. So again, read FA, understand it & test yourself with someone or yourself in the mirror😊
Best of luck. Please don’t ask me more Qs on this matter😊 there is no magic. Read what I just said and try it do Qs and evaluate yourself with nb online/timed.

The more you read the better the score ~poppy Goli😊
