A REVIEW ON SUSPENSIONS
Meher Afrin*, Dr. Osman Ahmed, Ashraf Unnisa and Mohammed Akthar Sulthana
Particles of insoluble solid drug serve as the dispersed or internal phase of a drug formulation. Particles in the internal phase vary in size from 0.5 to 5 m. An effective dosage form's efficacy is mainly determined by how well it's formulated and how readily the active medication or medicine is available to patients. An oral suspension is a liquid dosage form that includes one or more active compounds suspended in an appropriate carrier. They include antacids, antibiotics, analgesics, antihelminthics, anticonvulsants, and antifungals. Particles less than 5m in size are easier to dispense via a syringe. Insoluble medication suspensions may be applied externally as well, usually as a protective agent. Lotion architecture is easier to apply with suspensions since they are less untidy. It may be used as inhalations, ear drops, and ophthalmic products as well as lotions.
