It all depends on what the mix is. When I was doing Edex I was injecting 100 units, which is a whole ml, the full dose of Edex. Of course it isn't marked in units on the Edex syringes. I much prefer a stronger mix allowing the injection of considerably less volume.

Yep, ll depends on the formula. Soundslike your doctor prescribed a pretty water starter's mix. You'll have to go back to your doc and ask for a stronger script. Stating out with a weak mix is frustrating, but most docs prefer you work your way up the script scale than end up in the emergency room on your first injection.

When I first started out my formula was so weak I was injecting TWO syringes -- one with 100 units with an additional 30 more in the second syringe. Some guys are lucky and get a formula that is perfect right out of the gate. Others of us have to work at it a little more.

Good luck!

I was originally prescribed a “standRd” mix which worked great at 45 units and subsequently, I was able to reduce the dose down to 15 units. However, over the years, I had to increase the strength two times until even 100 units was no longer effective. Probably due to the increasing effects of my diabetes.
