So DVJorge said he took 3 million units of nystatin a day orally to fight off candida. Well I got a $300 bottle of nystatin from Fludan and am trying to figure out the math to replicate this.
What I know about it: comes in a container labeled ‘1BU’ Net Weight is ‘153 grams’ Potency is ‘6536 I.U./mg’
Trying to figure out how to convert 3 million units to grams or percentage of grams. Told it maybe .45 grams. Also told ‘3,000,000 IU x (1mg/6536IU) x (1g/0.001mg)= ~458,996 grams’ Which would be crazy because then this whole large bottle of nystatin would’t even be a days dosage on the protocol DVJ used. Thoughts?
If the container contains 1 billion units then 1 million is a thousandth of that. One thousandth of 153 grams is 153 milligrams. If you want 3 million units then you take 3*153= 459 milligrams. This is three thousandths of the total container so it would last you 333 days.
