yes, because that will avoid the ambiguity of an inputted duration being

        duration as instructed


        duration as taken
        (but I suppose the change can be deduced from an audit table)



despite that the prescribed supply may be longer or shorter than the intended 
duration... begs the question of the validity check when future-building a 
prescribing widget. A check should maybe only warn, and not prevent, because 
you may wish to have additional supply left over, in case the instruction to 
the patient permits as-needed extension of the course of treatment or to have 
sufficient supply to restart therapy during a future exacerbation.
