Hi, I'm taking Bengay (30% methyl salicylate) for inflammation. I'm weighing it on a scale to keep track. How many grams per day is okay to do? Thanks

In brief: Label directions

Since Bengay is purchased without a prescription it is safe to use.
I have not known of a dosage to exceed. The manufacturer of Bengal has FDA approval for its labeling directions. Use according to label. Never heard of weighing out the product. You might consider asking who told you to do this. Is insurance paying for it. Might be a payer issue w insurance on a prescription from a doctor.
