Thank you for giving us the correct numbers.

Here is an explanation followed by the revised calculations. Iíve also included the calculations needed to determine the pill weight of your target jump dose of 0.025mg clonazepam.

The weight of your pill (0.170g) is NOT the same as the medication dose (0.5 mg).  However, they are strictly related. When you reduce the pill weight by a given percent, you reduce the medication dose by the same percent.  For example:

You have reduced your dose from 0.170g pill weight to 0.036g pill weight.  Thatís a reduction of about 78.82%.

This means you are now ingesting 21.18% (100% minus 78.82%) of your original dose by pill weight (0.036 divided by 0.170 equals 0.21177).

It also means you have reduced your medication dose by the same percent ó about 78.82% and are now ingesting 21.18% of your original dose of 0.5mg clonazepam or about 0.1059mg clonazepam (.2118 times 0.5 equals 0.1059).

To determine the pill weight of your target jump dose of 0.025mg of drug Ö.

0.025mg of drug is 5% of your original dose of 0.5mg clonazepam (0.025 divided by 0.5 equals 0.05).

5% of a 0.170g pill weight is 0.0085g pill weight (0.05 times 0.170 equals 0.0085). 


Edit: Clarified percent reduced vs percent ingested
[...] - I think I have been my mg to weight conversion wrong.....I look at it as pill weight is .17grams and divide that by .5 mg to equal the weight being about 34% of whatever MG it is>  (.17/.5) = 34%.  Is that the wrong way to look at it?  and why?  see below A few of my daily reductions.

MG         Red %    Red amt   After Red   Scale Conv whole pills  .5 Pill (Scale)

 2.00          0.005     0.0100     1.9900    0.67658   0.51    0.16658
 1.9900     0.005     0.0100     1.9799    0.67317   0.51    0.16317
 1.9799     0.005     0.0100     1.9699    0.66975   0.51    0.15975

Hey [...]! I canít speak on the math theee but I did finally find/figure out this conversion tool that will show you both the mg/weight for where youíre at all the way down to the end. Super helpful!
