Melanotan Mixing & Dosing Instructions

Reconstitution (mixing)

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 sterile injectable water, sodium chloride or bacteriostatic water.

For 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 water

*  1 syringe

*  1 Sterile wipe

  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 sterile injectable water or 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 – with a 1ml syringe you will need to inject 2 full syringes of water into your Melanotan vial if mixing with 2ml of water.
  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 Spray

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 water

*  1 empty nasal spray bottle OR 1 OTC nasal mist

*  1 syringe

  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. If using sterile injectable water or 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 40 units (4ml) of water and inject it slowly into the Melanotan vial aiming at the side, not the powder. Some people find that mixing with only 4ml of water the peptide content is too strong for them and they experience bad short term side effects. Changing the amount of water you mix your peptide with can resolve this. These customers mix 80 units (8ml) of water with their Melanotan and spray x2 the recommended sprays so that they are still dosing the same mcg of Melanotan each dosage. If you want to mix your nasal spray up with more water than 4ml click here to purchase additional 2ml ampoles.
  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.

How to use… 

  1. Blow your nose gently to remove mucus from your nasal passages.
  2. Gently shake the bottle of Nasal Spray and remove the cap or lid from the bottle.
  3. Tilt your head slightly forward and close one nostril by gently pressing againstthe side of your nose with your finger.
  4. Insert the tip of the Nasal spray into the other nostril.
  5. Point the tip toward the back and outer side of your nose.
  6. Make sure to direct the spray straight back, not up into the tip of your nose.
  7. Squeeze the bottle as you begin to slowly breathe in through your nose.
  8. Remove the tip of the bottle from your nostril and breathe out through yourmouth.
  9. Repeat this procedure for your other nostril.
  10. Replace the lid on the bottle.
  11. Try to avoid sneezing or blowing your nose immediately after using.

We recommend the following loading dosage for the first 14 days:

Males 4 sprays in each nostril a day – reduce to 2 sprays in each nostril after 14 days.

Females 2 sprays in each nostril a day – reduce to 1 spray in each nostril after 14 days until the desired tan has been achieved.

TRY AND SPEND SAFE PERIODS OF TIME IN THE SUN TO STIMULATE THE MELANIN IN YOUR SKIN. YOU CAN ALSO USE THE SOLARIUM.

Once you have your desired tan (which will usually occur between 3 – 4 weeks) use the nasal spray twice a week in order to maintain the tan.

IF YOU FEEL YOU WANT TO BE BROWNER INCREASE YOUR DOSAGES AND IF YOU ARE TOO BROWN REDUCE YOUR DOSAGES.

Storage – Store in the fridge. Shelf life after first use is 12 weeks.

IF YOU HAVE ANY ABNORMAL OR HIGH LEVELS OF NAUSEA PLEASE CUT YOUR DOSAGES BY HALF IMMEDIATELY UNTIL YOUR BODY ADAPTS.

Administration

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

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.

Injecting

Actual injection takes place by pinching the skin loose from the muscle and raising it so that a needle can be inserted between the skin and muscle. This is not a deep injection and melanotan should be injected in the fat layer of the skin.

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 sterile injectable water or 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

*  A few alcohol swabs

  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. Insert 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 sterile injectable water or 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.

Dosage Information

MELANOTAN 1
Melanotan 1 has a half life of ~1 hour, this means to get the most out of it you should inject twice daily, once in the morning and then again midday or before UV exposure. It is also better to dose every single day – this adds up to a lot of injections.

Recommend dosages starting from 1mg (500mcg twice daily) for Melanotan 1 due to the lower side effects associated with it. After 2-4 days increase to 1.5mg (750mcg twice daily) and stick at this point. If you wish to increase the dose further, do so slowly.

MELANOTAN 2
Melanotan 2 has a half life of ~33 hours, 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 administed 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.

Suggested Dosing:


The below dosing plan is based on the vial being reconstituted with 2ml of water.

Day 1-3
0.2mg/day – pull the syringe upto halfway between the bottom and the 10 mark.

Day 4-6
0.5mg/day – pull the syringe upto the 10 mark

Day 7 – until you have your desired tan depth
Dose the advised units as per your weight per day up to a maximum of 1mg/day.
Anyone can safely dose 1mg/day if they aren’t experiencing any bad side effects
** UV exposure during loading level will help to achieve desired color faster** 

Maintenance dosing

Once you have reached your desired level of tan then you can enter what is known as the ‘maintenance phase’. 

Maintenance dosing requires much less frequent dosage than once a day.

Although the level is different for most people it levels out at around 500mcg every 3 or 4 days and a small amount of UV exposure with every or every other dose. This dosage will allow you to maintain your tan through winter without much work.

If you notice at any point you’re becoming darker, reduce the dose. If you notice you are getting lighter, add in an extra dose or have some more UV exposure if you can and if you haven’t already.

The maintenance dose can be continued indefinitely; however, if chosen to cease dosing for an extended amount of time the user’s sensitivity to the peptide will return, making it easy to reduce pigmentation and then rebuild the tan to the desired level.
