I am liking the responses. I'm going to give everyone points who contributes something new and related.

The main goal I have here is to use the information to help in building a software that involves dosage tracking of different medications. I have a list of 4200 medication names so now I need a generic list of different type of dosage units that might apply to any of those 4200 drugs without knowing the form of the drug (liquid, solid, airisole, etc)

FYI: I'm not sure I'd consider mg/kg as a "dosage unit"

this is used to calculate the dosage.  If I weigh 100kg, how many mg of medicine do I need?
The mg would be the dosage unit; with mg/kg being more of a calculation ratio.
