Chlorine vs chloramines - water conditioner q

I have a bottle of API tap water conditioner, and on the instructions it says to remove chlorine and detoxify heavy metals, add 2 drops per US gallon. Then it says to detoxify chloramines, add 6 drops per US gallon.
I was wondering which was necessary, the 2 drops or the 6? Last time I used 6 because I wasn't sure and I'd rather be safe than sorry, but I don't really know what chloramines are... if anyone could tell me which I need to do I would really appreciate it!

If you live in the US and use city water you most likely will have chloramines along with the chlorine in the source water...I would dose on the high side to be "better safe than sorry" it is hard to overdose most of the dechlorinator products anyway....
