Thread: Nu Image - Pellet Dosing

  1. #1

    Nu Image - Pellet Dosing

    Hi All - This will be my second time doing HCG but my first time using Rx pellets. My previous round, 5 years ago, was homeopathic drops that are part of the “Shape ReClaimed” program. My pellets from Nu Image should arrive tomorrow and based on the lurking I’ve done in the forum, it seems the pellets are a bit tricky to get the dose just right. I’d like to avoid a rough start on too high a dose and am wondering if I should go ahead and start the diet on half a pellet rather than the full. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Hi LadyPants - I used the RX pellets from Nu Image for my first round. They are teeny, tiny little things but you CAN cut them in half with a pill cutter (don't try with a kitchen knife). If I had it to do over, I would have started with half a pellet, but I didn't know they were 500IU when I first started. The thinking is that you don't absorb all of the hcg since you probably swallow some of it.

    The best piece of advise I got from Nu Image's Dr Mike, was to wake up a half hour before you normally get up, put the pellet under your tongue and go back to bed for at least 30 minutes. The pellet absorbs much better than if you try to not swallow after you're up and about. I would usually fall back asleep too

    I'd do exactly what you're thinking--cut them in two. they are much too high to begin with. It's aggravating.

    Hi LinderLou - Thanks so much for the info and for the tip about waking up early. I struggled with timing when I did the homeopathic drops. Did you take your second dose mid day or closer to early evening?

    Will do! Thanks so much Grammy!

    I am on RX pellets. Once a day dosing, like RX injections. Did they tell you dose multiple times each day?

    I am back on hcg...but i ordered the pellets since i didnt have refrigeration for injections while traveling. However, i got from NuImage... several of the pellets were crushed when they got here....then i waited till theys few replacements They are so small and fragile i dont see how i can cut them. I just started loading. They said three days. I always did two but followed their instructions. Tomorrow i start vlcd but wonder if and how i can cut pellets. I took full pellets first three days. Normally i start getting full after first day. Not so this time. Is that because they are too strong? .they are b12hcg pellets. Lots of money to get it wrong Help

    First, great to see you posting again Rose. Sorry you are having to do another round. I know how hard you work at keeping at goal.

    Since the pellets are crumbly, it's going to be really hard to get uniform doses by dividing them. I wonder if you could control the dosing better by dissolving them in distilled water and then figure dose according to your dilution ratio. I know that works with other forms of tablet/pellet type medications.

    This isn't anything that I know has been tried before, so it probably needs some exploring before it can be recommended. I'm going to start a discussion on it with the other moderators.

    Leez.. i prefer not to disolve them... i am thinking to try them as provided and find a way to split them if i have hunger. Otherwise i might pay for a batch of injections but dont want to as i never mixed my own and will be traveling again end of August, One thing Leez i realized is that if i can stay at my liw or a little below i do okay...but once i climb 4 lbs over liw the creeping doesnt stop and i see half a lb per week or 2-3 lbs per month ...ouch. I have decided if i have to do correction round with hcg every 18 mos or so then so be it, i will do it. Otherwise it will keep going in wrong direction

    I changed some of what I said in my post, as I think I don't want people to assume its a recommendation. But I think its a thought worth some exploration.

    You should be able to at least break the pellets in half should you experience hunger or poor losses. Its not a very accurate way to divide dose, but it may be enough to keep your round successful. But if you are losing at a normal pace for you and not experiencing hunger then you may not need to cut back.

    I sure understand that creep thing. I too seem to be fine for a while and then something happens and I get steady small gains that I can't seem to get back from. I'm still in the 130's right now, but not the low end where I want to be.
    I'm starting to wonder if my body just won't ever settle in the low 130's.

    Leez, i was a le to buy a pill cutter and it worked. Problem might be that half dose might be too low. Hunger not issue today..first vlcd day but feel a little jittery... they might be caffeine

    Can you ask? That would be a good thing to know.

    Glad the pill cutter worked.
