Reconstitution

This is the act of dissolving your freeze dried powder into a sterile liquid medium ready for injection or into a spray for nasal administation.
This can be accomplished with either sodium chloride or bacteriostatic water.

Injection

There isn't much to consider here except dosage.
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.

First, gather your supplies;
1 Vial of Melanotan
1 Vial/ampule of Wwter
1 Insulin syringe
1 Alcohol swab

1 Take your Melanotan vial and pop off the top of the vial to reveal the rubber stopper. Wipe with the swab.
2 If using bacteriostatic water, pop off the top of the vial (if applicable) to reveal the rubber stopper. Wipe with the swab.
If using sodium chloride, twist off the top of the ampule
3 Next insert a syringe into the vial/ampule and hold it upside down.
4 Withdraw your water and inject it slowly into the Melanotan vial aiming at the side, not the powder. This make take several attempts based on the size of your syringes.
5 Place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight while the powder dissolves, you can swirl or tilt the vial to help. Some residue may remain.

For Nasal

This can be accomplished in many ways, the most used method is to mix the freeze dried peptide with sterile water and then transfer it into the nasal spray bottle.
However, you can mix it with an over the counter nasal mist which can allow for better use.
If using this and the mixture is thin then you can substitute the water and just remove some from this to reconstitute.

First, gather your supplies;
1 Vial of Melanotan
1 Vial/ampule of Wwter
1 Insulin syringe
1 Nasal spray bottle

1 Take your Melanotan vial and pop off the top of the vial to reveal the rubber stopper.
2 If using bacteriostatic water, pop off the top of the vial (if applicable) to reveal the rubber stopper. Wipe with the swab.
If using sodium chloride, twist off the top of the ampule
3 Next insert a syringe into the vial/ampule and hold it upside down.
4 Withdraw 50 units of water and inject it slowly into the Melanotan vial aiming at the side, not the powder.
5 Place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight while the powder dissolves, you can swirl or tilt the vial to help. Some residue may remain.
6 Insert the syringe again and turn upside down.
7 Withdraw all of the liquid and remove the syringe.
8 Unscrew the cap of your nasal spray and slowly inject the liquid into the bottle.
9 If using an empty bottle you can now transfer the remainder of the water. Wait 2 hours before use.

Administration

Overview


Here you need to consider your dosage again. I’ll be using the figures I stated earlier.

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.

Depending on the size of your needles the scale on the needle can change. The most common two are as follows.





You also need to consider your injection site, the most popular is the stomach, followed by the leg and buttocks.




If you have a low body fat percentage you may have to inject at a 45 degree angle or use short needles.
If you can pinch a small amount of fat then you can inject at a 90 degree angle.



Pre-loading

Pre-loading can be advantageous when using sodium chloride or if you wish to save time later.
This is the best method for when using sodium chloride as it eliminates risk of contamination.

Gather your supplies;
1 Vial of reconstituted Melanotan
All of your syringes.
3/4 Alcohol wipes
1 Start by wiping your Melanotan stopper and then insert the syringe.
2 Turn the vial upside down and withdraw your required dose.
3 Return the right way up and remove the syringe.
4 Carefully replace the cap.
5 Repeat for all of your syringes. If your swab becomes dry then replace it, one swab should manage about 10 syringes
6 Place your syringes in a zip lock bag and place in the freezer.
1 When ready to administer your dose take a syringe out of the fridge and allow to thaw, this should only take a few minutes.
You can hold it in your hand to speed up the process.
2 Find a suitable injection site and wipe with the alcohol swab.
3 nsert the needle into your skin in a firm and swift movement.
4 Slowly push the plunger until all the liquid is gone.
5 Remove the needle in a similar fashion as above and dispose.
6 A small amount of blood can be expected, just use the swab to give it another wipe.

Normal injections

This is the easiest method and is advised when using bacteriostatic water.
You can use this method with sodium chloride, however, you must ensure the vials are kept sterile at all times.
The smallest amount of bacteria can multiply to harmful levels in hours to days depending on storage.
