    Hmmmmm.... i'll give it a whirl but only to assess whether or not this dose of prednisone I'm on is still pushing on my "stupid" neuroceptors..... ==wish me luck.

    1. 12.98 or 13 minnums

    2. 125 mcg into 500 mcg = 4 mcg, then 0.5 mg (500 mcg) / 5 ml (1 tsp) = 0.8 ml
    (PS that's usually an SL route....but ask before you give!)

    3. 1.6 ml

    4. 275 mg/dose

    5. 2.3 cc (4.6 ml vial, containing 5 gm total; 1/2 of 5 = 2.5, give 1/2 the vial?)
