I've read quite a few, well tons actually, of studies involving meds and mice/rats...dosages always seem massive. Like you mention...they don't translate like that into human doses. Do you have any idea, for future reference, how they extrapolate this data for patient usage (i.e. a formula or something for me)? It would help me make sense of tons of articles i've read and laughed at regarding the dose.
