Something amiss with the math. 2g per kg. If you weighed 50kg, it is about 110 lbs. Therefore, for a 110 lb person, the ‘standard’ loading dose would be 100g. You say you got 5mg. 5mg= .005g
Somebody else help with the math, that is 100/.005 or 1/20,000 of a normal dose. nu uh. Something amiss if that little bit gave you a major headache.
Even a 10g dose is 1/10th the normal loading dose. Ask your doctor about infusion rates, how long does it take to get your infusion?
