Unlike pharmaceutical syrup, oral solution is relatively similar only that the drug particles do not dissolve into solvent completely. Instead, they get suspended in the medium of the liquid making it pretty difficult for drug particles to distribute throughout the solution. Particles, in this case, may be subjected to effects of some forces externally i.e. gravity. Finally, the solution will form two distinct layers where the top layer is less concentrated than the bottom one.
For young children, most of the suspension used is liquid antibiotics. That is why patient education, in this case, is crucial. Suspension formulation development pharmacists should teach their patients to shake well before use when administering these medicines to them. Otherwise, the dosage may not work effectively as expected and they will have an inappropriate impact on the users.
