This is a correction needing to be made to the Fluoride : Prozac and Fluorine article:

The calculation for the Molar Mass of a Prozac molecule is wrong.
C17H18F3NO = 309.33 g/mol
so the calculations are off
it should read: The proportion of Fluorine to Prozac is 57 /309.33 = .184 or 18.4%
instead of :The proportion of Fluorine to Prozac is 57 / 345.79 = .165 or 16.5%

and .165 x 20 = 3.3mg should say
.184x20 = 3.68 mg
