Liquid dosage forms
Solutions, suspensions, emulsions and ointments
A primary function of an excipient is to dilute or 'bulk out' the active ingredient and act as a processing aid for the formulation. Sweetening agents are used in liquid dosage formulations such as syrups in order to provide a palatable way of administering an active compound to patients, as well as for some of their more functional properties.
Another essential function of an excipient is to texturize by thickening and stabilizing the preparation, as well as to suspend the non-soluble ingredients of the formulation. Polysaccharides such as carrageenans or xanthan gums are used as rheology control and suspending agents to provide many attractive features to liquid oral pharmaceutical formulations.
Phospholipids can also be used to encapsulate an active ingredient by the spontaneous formation of cell-like structures: the liposomes. They are able to entrap the active ingredient, to protect it or to provide a controlled release.
