20 units DO NOT equal 20 cc's. Some syringes, such as insulin syringes, are marked in units to denote strength of the individual medication and are matched to the strength of that medication only.

Questions about use of specific syringes or medications should be addressed to a medical professional or pharmacist only.

Be careful! Getting an answer about dosage over the internet can be dangerous, as there is nothing to ensure you're getting a correct answer. Using medications where you’re unsure about the dosage can lead to overdose or death.
