Jenny demanded that the oncologist reduce the dosage and told him that her cancer might not kill the patient but the chemotherapy would. The oncologist reluctantly reduced the dose of medicine to three-and-a-half hours instead of 5 for the fifth and sixth chemotherapy sessions.

Are "dosage" and "dose" used correctly?

Thanks.

Thanks, InfraBlue.
Can 'dosage' be replaced by 'dose'?

@tanguatlay,
"Dose" refers to the single application amount of a medicine, whereas "dosage" refers to the duration or frequency of the dose taken.

Looking at it again, it seems the sentence has the use of "dose" wrong.

@tanguatlay,
Looking at it a third time, the sentence does have it correct.

Sorry, it's Monday here.
