Melanotan 2 has a life of 36 hours in your body, this allows you to be very flexible with dosing. Recommended dosages start at 250mcg every day to help your body acclimatize to the peptide and minimize the side effects.
You can continue with this dose indefinitely if you are intending to do a low dosage regimen.
If you want to dose higher, after 2-4 days, whenever you feel comfortable, up the dose to 500mcg. 500mcg is the most common dosage amount administered by users.
You can increase the dose as far as about 1mg but any higher is generally not advised and the users dosing 1mg/dose normally weigh around the 100kg mark.
“Clinical studies have shown that Melanotan works without the need to combine it with any UV exposure, although results are achieved much faster when you incorporate 1-2 tanning sessions either the natural sun or ultraviolet with your Melanotan dosage. The reason for this is while Melanotan significantly raises your levels of melanin, which is the brown pigment that gives your skin its tanned appearance, UV rays are an important factor in discharging your body’s melanin to the surrounding skin tissue.”
• Insulin Syringe Typically, insulin needles are to be used to inject or mix the peptide.
These needles are 29 to 30 gauge by ½” with a 1 CC (100 units) capacity. It's possible to use larger syringes, however getting precise measurements can be difficult.
Volume of insulin syringes is measured in IU (International Units) 100 IU = 1 ML 10 IU = 0.1 ML If you reconstituted with 1ml of water every unit is 100mcg of Melanotan.
If you want to dose 500mcg, you need 5 units.
If you want to dose 1000mcg, you need 10 units.
If you reconstituted with 2ml of water every unit is 50mcg of Melanotan.
If you want to dose 100mcg, you need 2 units.
If you want to dose 250mcg, you need 5 units.
If you want to dose 500mcg, you need 10 units.
• Sterile Water
Opened sterile injectable water should be disposed of after first use.
If you wish to use doses of less than 500mcg it would be best to use 2ml (200 units) of water.
If you wish to use doses of 500mcg or more then you can use 1ml (100 units).
This allows you to accurately measure doses while not having to inject more fluid than required.
• Alcohol Swab
Always make sure you wipe the rubber stopper before inserting the needle
