I need to convert this dosage to ml/lb

There is one character which I dont have on keyboard; its between the last "0" in 200 and the "g". it looks like a backwards/upside "h". I'll " " the regular "h" I CAN type in place of it:

200"h"g per kg.

This medicine is direly needed so I hope you can get back to me soon

That upside down "h", µ is the symbol for micro, denoting 1/1,000,000. So 1 µg = 0.000001 gram. The µ is the greek letter "mu", and is not available on keyboards directly. Microgram is sometimes noted using the abbreviation, "mcg”

That said, you give 200 µg/kg, which is a weight/weight strength statement but you want ml/lb, a volume/weight statement. As you’re dealing with a liquid medication, you need to provide a strength statement from the bottle or insert. Examples: medication name 10 mcg/ml, medication name 10 µg /ml, or medication name 5 mg/ml, etc. This shows how much medication (by weight) is in a quantified volume.

If you post that information, someone will give you an answer although I caution you to check with a pharmacist instead. If someone gives you an incorrect answer that you use, the consequences could be disastrous.
