If you’re actually trying to expand your knowledge of chemistry why are you asking on a video game forum? Did you ever consider Wikipedia or Google? I’m not trolling, I AM curious as to why you immediately select us for all of your personal and academic needs.
That safe daily dosage is for people who make regular use of the drug.
When you see some “safe daily dosage” on something, keep in mind that it’s assumed the stuff will be used continously by the patient. If you only have to take it once and then you’ll keep away from the substance for a long period, then monstly you can take a larger dose.
Just think like this: Drinking yourself 'til you get smashed once or twice a year won’t kill you, but if you drink 1 can of beer on every meal, on the long term your liver will suffer.
But let’s say a dose of 2.5g was taken in a span of 1 hour. Is this safe?
No. I’m no expert, but I know that an extra strength Tylenol is 500mg, and I would NOT take five of those fucking things at once.
According to my elite math skills, 10g/24h, can also ratio into approximately 0.466g/1h. Would this still be considered a safe dosage per hour?
No. That’s why on the bottle it says to take one every four hours.
10g is the MAXIMUM safe dose. I’d stay FAR below that. Don’t push your luck.
So 0.5~g/hour isn’t considered safe? By your logic, that means that it’s safe for 24/4=> 6capsules/24h. 6X500mg = 3g. 3g is reccomended daily, then. But each capsule is 500mg, so 500mg/1hour, by your logic, is dangerous.
1cap = 500mg
1000mg = 1g
10g/24h = max dose
0.466g/1h = max dose per hour, according to math
Well then, to further up your knowledge, there are some drugs that, when taken, sometimes display an effect called by some “flashback”. It means you get stoned today, then you completely abstain yourself from the stuff, and then a week later, or maybe a month later (where I live, there’s a herb whose tea can give a flashback up to around a semester after the last dose) you’ll be stoned again without having to retake it.
I’ll let you do the research on the topic by yourself now.
It isn’t. 1 per hour is higher than overdose. 1 per 4 hours is fine. It’s all about when you take them and how long they take to course through your system and be used up. The idea is to not have too much in your system at once. 500mg is fine all at once. 500mg every hour for 4 hours is dangerous.
