Oral solutions vary in concentration; consider total dosage in terms of mcg and not volume (mL) when converting between oral solution products.
Significant differences exist between oral and IV dosing. Use caution when converting from one route of administration to another.

To avoid errors due to misinterpretation of a decimal point, always express dosage in mcg (not mg).
