I presume that #"suspension"# means the same that it does in chemistry.


And a medicine that is a #"suspension"# is a mixture of fine, insoluble particles that are dispersed in a liquid phase. And typically when you administer such a medicine you would vigorously agitate the mixture so that the suspension is evenly dispersed thruout the dose you measure.
