Well, 30 mg of water is 0.006 teaspoons.
But that isn't what you want. Liquid medicines dissolve the active ingredient in a buffer solution and can be mixed in different strengths. There should be a statement somewhere on the bottle, package, or insert sheet that explains how many milligrams of the active ingredient are contained in a milliliter of the mixture.
You HAVE to find that statement or else discuss with your doctor or pharmacist.
If you find that statement, determine the dose in milliliters, 5 mL is a teaspoon (use a measuring spoon, not tableware)
