Absolutely.  That is a great way to do it. 
I would also recommend you keep a journal every day of your dose and your symptoms.  You can then look back on it to decided if dropping 1 mL per day is working for you and make adjustments to slow down or speed up.

[...],

You said to me earlier you think the dropper with the intensol has a marking for .5mg

If that is true, it is very easy to get 0.1 mg dose.

You would put 0.5 mg into 200 mL of water or milk and stir well.  Then drink 40 mL of it to get 0.1 mg.

HOWEVER

If you are unsure about the 0.5mg mark, then here is another way.

I understand you intensol is 1mg/1ml

(1) Get a 1 mL syringe - here is a link https://smile.amazon.com/1ml-Syringe-Individually-Medicine-Administration/dp/B07GX4RJF3/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3DIKQPN0WIYS9&keywords=1+ml+syringes+sterile+no+needle&qid=1652210137&sprefix=1+ml+sy%2Caps%2C125&sr=8-3

(2) Also get 10 mL syringes - here is a link https://smile.amazon.com/10ml-Syringe-Sterile-BH-SUPPLIES/dp/B07KQP69RG/ref=sr_1_3?crid=194T29F3FW9PP&keywords=10+ml+syringes+sterile+no+needle&qid=1652210240&sprefix=10+ml+syringes+sterile+no+needle%2Caps%2C85&sr=8-3

(2) Put 1 mL of intensol into a jar

(3) Add 100 mL of water or milk and mix well

(4) Use your 10 mL syringe (each 10 mL will be 0.1 mg of drug).

Good luck.

Bob

Just checking Ö isnít the lorazepam Intensol 2mg/mL?

Hi [...],  I just double checked and you are correct it is  2MG/ML  It does have a graduated dropper that goes down to .5mg but will this change the whole formula as to how much water to add? It shouldn't right? My benzo brain is having a hard time...... I should probably ask Bob.

Thanks [...] for helping with the 2mg/mL with a mark for giving 0.5 mg.

So for the two methods I gave, the top one is still use 200 mL of water and drink 40 mL to get 0.1 mg.

But for the "HOWEVER" version, the forth step would change to become:
(4) Use your 10 mL syringe BUT ONLY GIVE YOURSELF 5mL to get 0.1 mg of drug.

Thank you Bob. I am going to be using the top one so everything will stay the same.  And Thank you [...] for pointing that out to me as it being 2mg/ml  for some reason I had thought that the lorazepam intensol was 2mg./2ml .  Thank you very much to both of you for helping me figure this out...  :hug:

Hi Bob and [...], I have a question about mixing the lorazepam intensol with the water. You had said to mix the .5mg of intensol which is 1/4 of a ml. with 200 ml of water. and then drink 40ml. But I was thinking shouldn't I mix 199.75 ml. of water considering that the intensol is .25ML.?  Or does it really make any difference considering it is only .25 of a ml. ? It would definitely be easier to just mix it with 200ml. of water...
Thank you!!!!
