YOu seem to have 20 mg of Methyl in total divided into 5 vials. This means you have 4mg i each vial.

Sorry, the message was sent accidentally. 4 mg is very high for one injection. It is usual to take 1mg for an injection. I don't know how large your vials with the Methyl are. You need only 1Mg per injection. Strong dilutions are more suitable as nasal sprays or sub-lingual. Don't know if this will help you All the best anyhow.

I recognise the wording of this ad as I buy from the same company.

The ad is for 5 injections each of 20mg.

Wedgwood is right. Common convention in our part of the world is to have a 1mg/2mg injection. When you go to other parts of the world larger doses are common though. Personally I inject 5mg per week and that keeps me peachy :-)

The same firm also do 1mg,5mg and 10mg so you can take your pic.

Hope that helps. Enjoy your Sunday

Good luck with it all.

Once you take that step and start doing it for yourself you'll wonder why it took you so long. I know it made a HUGE difference in my life.
