conversion from units to mg's

Postby cholland » Fri Jun 30, 2006 2:31 am

I am trying to figure out a needle conversion. I am surpose to take 30 "mg"(1ml) of a anti-inflammatory medication for my headaches, but I only have insulin needles and they are 1 "unit" (3/10 of a cc) how many "units" do I have to do to equal 30"mg"? I could probably figure this out on paper, but my brain isn't working right now. LOL

Insulin syringes don't come in a "one unit" size that I'm aware of. Although syringes do come in different sizes . . .

. . . I'm wondering why you have 3/10 cc syringes when it seems an injectable anti-inflammatory medication would be prescribed by a Doctor. If that's the case, surely the Doctor or Pharmacist wouldn't give you the wrong size syringes!

In case (s)he did give you the wrong syringes, I suggest you take them (and the medication) back to the pharmacy where you got them and ask them to explain.
