    In a Spanish medical record, the abbreviation, lu c/en comes after a certain dosage of medication. I know that "lu" could possibly mean lunes, and c/ is cada, but I don't know what "en" stands for.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    What's the medication and what's the dosage?
    At first I thought of IU, but of course in Spanish they're UI.
