MCG compared to MG

Postby Sophiesmom » Sun May 25, 2008 4:45 am

How many mcg = mg?
Example.. I have pills that are 500 mcg, however I am to be taking 3 mg. Can you tell me how many pills I need to = 3 mg?

Thanks

mcg is an improper abbreviation for microgram used by US pharmaceutical industry (should be µg). 1 mg = 1000 µg

so 3 mg = 3000 µg = 6 x 500 µg
