just my gut feeling this would be too restrictive

specify each does and set the period to the entire length of
the titration phase

not sure I understand

IMO always g or ml

"each" might be used for, like, "1 pill as packaged"

IMO, however, this is directions stuff: "take 1 pill at ..."
and the actual amount in g should be put into dosage_unit

Also, what about i.U., eg. international units, eg. "apply 4
units in the morning, 5 in the evening", eg insulin ?
