I know sometimes on pills it says 2 mg and it means 10 and I found one and looked it up and it says 1mg. What does that mean?
Is a 1 mg mean 10 mg or is it just 1?

If you looked it up and "it" said it was a 1 mg pill, then it would be a 1 mg pill. I don't think they even make or would prescribe a 10 mg pill of this medication (if it is what you think it is)! When you say you looked it up, what did you look it up in? The pharmacy lable is what you should be looking at so that you're not guessing what the pill is. You can also use the Pill Identifer on this site or a PDR. I wouldn't try to guess and wouldn't take it unless you're 100 percent sure of what it is and that it's prescribed for you (& ALSo not outdated or have been left outside in the heat).
It may say 1 or 2 but not milligrams. If it has a 1 0r 2 it may be an ID code number for the manufacturer and has nothing to do with the mg. Look at the label and not the pill for the milligrams. Numbers on pills are often for identification and have nothing to do with strength. For example all of these pills are marked with a number 1 and some of them are 1mg and some are other strengths: https://www.drugs.com/imprints.php?imprint=1&color=&shape=0
I don't know where you get your info, but I'd sure like you to make change for me. 1 is never 10 and 2 is never 10, they are 1 and 2.
Only the doctor that prescribed it can give you that answer. So to be safe I would contact that prescribing doctor. No one wants you to take too much and get sick. Good luck keep us informed
