Dry Syrups

Dry syrups which are also known as powder for suspension are
dosage forms that contain the medication in powder form. This solid powder
should be reconstituted by dissolving or suspending in water before
administration. Dry syrup is usually suitable for children and elderly patients
because of easy administration. Many antibiotics which are not stable in liquid
media for long period can easily supply in this dry form. They are to be
reformulated by mixing with certain amount of boiled water and should be use up
within certain periods of times which is normally 5 days. The processing steps
are also reduced for dry syrup compared to other oral liquids and subsequently reduced
cost.
