The above prescription information may contain information on the dose of the dose taken at one time. In this case, the determination unit 22 derives the necessary capacity of the concave portion 31 necessary for accommodating the medicine M for a single administration based on the information on the dose amount of the one-time administration amount in the prescription data received by the prescription data receiving unit 21. . In the determination unit 22, when the required capacity to be derived is larger than the capacity of the concave portion 31 formed by the molding die 133 used in the concave portion forming portion 13, the capacity of the concave portion 31 is determined to be insufficient. In addition, in the present embodiment, the "derivation" is performed by referring to the calculation of the data table stored in the determination unit 22 or the like in addition to the calculation, and various steps are allowed. Moreover, the necessary capacity can also be derived in consideration of a predetermined margin.
When the prescription information contains information on the dose amount of the one-time serving amount as described above, the necessary capacity is derived based on the information on the dose amount of the one-time serving amount in the prescription data, and the capacity of the concave portion 31 can be determined based on the necessary capacity. insufficient. Therefore, it can be appropriately determined whether or not the capacity of the concave portion 31 is insufficient.
The determination unit 22 of the present embodiment derives the necessary volume of the concave portion 31 necessary for accommodating the medicine for a single dose as the necessary capacity. As described above, the necessary volume is used as the necessary capacity, whereby the necessary capacity can be easily derived. The necessary volume is, for example, a volume (a volume of a solid portion) of the drug M, and a volume (a volume of a space portion) which is generated around the drug M when the concave portion 31 is inserted, and is determined in advance. The aforementioned derivation, for example, corresponds to one A combination of a dose of the agent M.
The prescribing information may also contain information about the number of servings taken at multiple times and contains information about the amount of the dose per serving.
