When I start MT2 I start with as little as 50mcg. The way I look at it is it means no horrible nausea etc. Even 100mcg can bring about a dark tan. I would stay around 100mcg for at least a week. Then slowly move up to a max of about 250-400mcg. 250mcg will give you a dark tan and if you move up slowly side effects should be minimal. Obviously the higher you go the darker you go but the chances of side effects increase. No one needs to be injecting 1mg... throwing away money.
