How fast does your body (bowels ) let you know when you overdose on vit C/Sodium Ascorbate?

My question (and please forgive if this seems way obvious to all you who already use the SA powder): If I order the SA powder, what I imagine getting is a box/bottle of, well...powder. People talk about giving so-and-so many grams, but how exactly do you measure that out? By the teaspoon? Do you weigh it somehow? A pinch?
It depends on the child. I start at 250 mg per kg of body weight.
1 kg = 2.2 pounds. so your 32 lb one, is 14.5 kgs, x 250 mgs = 3,636 mgs over waking hours.
24 lbs divided by 2.2= 9.9 x 250 = 2,475 mgs over waking hours. Obviously I don't worry about exact numbers. 1,000 mgs = 1/4 level tsp. so I eyeball it from there.
If that doesn't bring results, I up the dose.
Our youngest needs almost double the dose the oldest needs.
For my husband it certainly is. He was able to drop all antihistamine medication once he got onto a decent dose of vitamin c.
