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 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.

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.
