Thank you. The clerk at the Vitamin Shoppe told me the 10,000mcg was larger.
Last time I bought the 500mg and even the pills were larger and I didn't get as many at the mcg's. You would think they would be a little more knowledgeable.

Oh I agree!! And instead of being honest and telling you they don't know, they make something up. Frustrating!

1 mg = 1000mcg.
Therefore,, 10000mcg =10mg.
So 500mg is 50 times larger than 10000mcg
