1. ## Dosing help for the Mathematically Challenged

Alright, I have a bottle of Clen. 30ml- 200mcg/ml. I also have a 10ml syringe that measures .10's of ML's. If I want to take 20mcg's what would I measure that to on the syringe? Or approximately how many drops would that be?

And then how about for 40, 60, and 80mcg?

Also with the T3, I have 30ml-50mcg/ml. If I want to take 50mcg's that would just be 1 ml correct?

2. Clen .10ml
T3 1ml

3. Also with the T3, I have 30ml-50mcg/ml. If I want to take 50mcg's that would just be 1 ml correct?
Correct

1/10 of a mL would be right for the 20 mcg clen dose. 2/10 for 40 mcg etc. For stuff that small, it is best to see how many drops it takes to fill the oral syringe from the backside to the 1 mL mark. Write down the number of drops, and return the liquid to the bottle. Suppose it took 40 drops for 1 mL, then 4 drops would be 1/10. Equation: 200/ # of drops per mL (200/40) = 5 mcg per drop in this example.

4. So if I have 100 drops in an ML, the dosage for 20mcg would be 20 drops?

5. First find out how many drops it realy does take to fill an oral syringe to a mL mark. It is likely 30-40. Simply divide 200 by that number and you have mcg/drop.

6. I really dont think a 10ml syringe is going to be accurate at the low numbers, the pin itself will hold around a tenth of a ml depending on the gauge and length. Was that a typo?

Was what a typo?

You said you have a 10mL syringe. Do you have an oral syringe? How much does your oral syringe hold?

10. 10mL syringe with 1/10th cc markings? Thats like the veritable "horse needle" for a couple drops.
