Dosage Conversion

Hi All:

When I first found this board, someone posted a conversion for MTX.  It was a conversion that showed how cc's of MTX based on dosage.  Does anyone know what I'm talking about and can they post it again?  I thought I kept it and I can't find it anywhere.  It was a chart and for instance, I take 12.5 and it equals .5 cc of MTX.

Thanks!!!!

1 cc equals 2.5mg of Mtx so one pill

I found this one: * .1 CC/ML equals 2.5 mg

may come in different concentrations and a liquid dose cannot be equated
with a tablet dose. A tablet is not measured in cc(ml)
