Brief Answer:
See the strength and get back please

Detailed Answer:
Hi...Omnacortil comes in the strength of 5mg/5ml. Please see the printed matter on the pack.

If the composition shows - EACH 5ML CONTAINS 5MG OF OMNACORTIL . Then you can go ahead and it give. It is one and the same. Do not worry.
