Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I have medication that says take 15 to 30 CC's and I lost the cup you measure in so I need to know how many Tablespoons equals 30 CC's
I am in pain and it is Sunday and I can't take my medicine because I don't know what 30 CC's equals in Tablespoons. Please help. Thanks, Lea

29.57 mL (same thing as cc) is 1 fl oz or 2 Tablespoons. I'm sure you could round and use 30 cc = 1 oz approx.

No. You mean tsp (teaspoons). 5 ccs = 1tsp (teaspoon). Tbs is tablespoon.

If someone needs to take 15 to 30 ccs of something, they need to take 3 to 6 teaspoons. Seeing as how there are 3 teaspoons in one tablespoon, they would need to take between 1 and 2 tablespoons.
