    Dosage of Duramycin-10 is 400 to 800mg per gallon a day. That equals out to 1/2 to 1 tablespoonful to a gallon of water, depending on the strength you want to use. I might start with the lower dose and increase it in a day or two if no improvement. Duramycin is recommended for mycosplama and E. coli infections.
