What kind of scale needed for valium 10 mg down to one?
« on: May 09, 2018, 03:49:19 pm »
What kind of scale is best for cutting 10 mg valium down to 1 mg? 
I'm going to try this after having a BAD reaction tapering from .25 klon to .125 klon.  There was no way to reduce the dose more slowly with a limited number of .5 tablets. 
How low in weight does an effective scale need to go?  Need to know before trying to buy a scale. 
I'd also love to hear from anyone else who has used a similar taper method.

Hi Random Girl-

The scale should go to .001mg...this type of scale is called a "gram" scale

Many use this Gemini 20 Gram Scale to taper with.

Thanks.  After asking I realized it was a stupid question.  I thought the answer should be a 1-gram scale.  That tells you what the brain fog I'm in right now.  If the valium comes through I will buy the scale you suggested.
