Procedure:

1. Method of preparation:
 All the ingredients were weighed accurately.
 Calcium carbonate, sodium bisulfite and kollidon 90 F (PVP) were passed
through sieve no. 20 and mixed thoroughly in a mortar.

attempt is made to prepare stable and pourable oral suspension with various synthetic and syrup base structured vehicles. Conclusion:  In oral suspension formulation uniformity of solid or dispersed phase in dispersed medium ensured by addition of proper viscosity enhancers throughout its shelf life. . Methyl cellulose also gives easily redispersed suspension while Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose form hard cake and it cannot be easily redispersed. it does not form a hard cake and can be easily redispersed.  In the present study.  Dispersed phase can be kept in well distributed form by addition of various structured vehicles but the viscosity of the formulation should not affect the pourability of the dosage form.  The observation shows that syrup base structured vehicle gives flocculated suspension which is desirable.Date Page no.  In oral suspension formulation solid should have minimum sedimentation and this can be achieved by addition of structured vehicles.
