SYRUP is a liquid preparation of medicinal or flavoring substances in a concentrated aqueous solution of a sugar, usually sucrose; when the syrup contains a medicinal substance, it is termed a medicated syrup.
In medical terminology, medicinal syrups or syrupus are nearly saturated solutions of sugar in water in which medicinal substances or drugs are dissolved. Basically, it is an oral suspension in liquid form. The medical syrup or pharmaceutical syrup is actually used as a vehicle for medicine. It is usually used as a flavored vehicle for drugs. Syrups should be kept closely tight in a cool, dry place after use in order to preserve them.
