## Lexapro – Look A Little Closer At This Ssri

I need to take 250 iu of hcg with my insulin syringe. I think my doctor said fill it to line 15, I'm not 100% sure and I can't get through to him right now. Anyone know the conversion? I believe he mixed my 10,000 iu hcg with 5ml of water instead of teh full 10.

10,000 iu's mixed with 5ml =
2,000iu's per ml
On a U100 syringe...
Every 10 units = 200iu's
250iu's = 15 units. You are correct.
Keep in mind...An iu is not a measure of volume. (I.U.’s) are a measure of biological activity specific to the substance.
An international unit is a way to express the activity or effect of some vitamins (primarily fat soluble) and hormones. For each substance that is expressed in international units, there is an international agreement that outlines the biological effect expected with a dose of 1 I.U. The value is different for each substance, since effect differs between substances. Therefore an insulin syringe is for measuring insulin and thats it. So an iu on an insulin syringe is 1iu of U100 insulin.

Click to expand... You have got good answer, well (250IU=12.5marks), but for future it may be easier to put in 10mL of water.
My Novarel 10000Iu came with 30mL Bacteriostatic vial of water .
I put 10mL of water into vial with powder.
1mL=1000IU
I use 30 gauge 1/2" needle 1cc insulin syringe, it is marked with 100 units
1cc=1mL
10IU per one mark on syringe
I use 250IU shots, draw up to 25 mark on syringe.
