1 teaspoon is approximately 5 mL. So 10 mL is 400 mg.
Use a measuring spoon; tableware may not be accurate for volume.

Read my note, then read the bottle. Either it tells you the ratio or it doesn't. There is not a fixed answer, it depends on the medication and the strength to which it has been mixed.

Rearranged, the question is: How much will 100% weigh, when 6.5% weighs 115mg?

115 x 100/6.5 = 1.8g (1769mg)

You need 115mg, you know that your solid contains 6.5% of what you need, so it is a proportion calculation.

Question Re: Convert mL to mg

Hello....

I need to take 2 types of medication @ 400mg per week; the medication is as follows:

Strength: 100mg/ml
Vial: 5 ml each

So am I correct in thinking that 1 vial equates to 500mg?

If I need 4000mg over the course 10 week period, I would need 8 vials?

------------------------------

The other is also 400mg per week:

Each ml of oil contain: 75 mg
Size: 10 ml vial

And here, 1 vial equals 750mg

If I need 4000mg over the course 10 week period, I would need 6 vials?

If I am incorrect please let me know


Kind regards
