We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

One Milliliter to Twenty-five Milligrams

Postby Dawnxbear » Thu Nov 22, 2007 2:26 am

I was taking Doxepin (an anti-depressant) in liquid form (1.0 milliliter) as a sleeping aid. Since I felt that my body was getting used to the dose, I asked my doctor to increase it. He prescribed 25.0 milligrams in capsule form, telling me to cut the tablet in half and take 12.50 milligrams each evening. The pharmacy said I can only get it in capsule form, so he told me to take the 25.0 milligram capsule. I have only been taking it for four days now, but I'm not noticing much of a difference. How much of an increase was this actually?

Nobody can answer without knowing how many mg of Doxepin are in 1 ml liquid and how many mg of the same substance are in the 25 mg capsule since there are also innert additives.
