# What does the suspension mean in medicine?

Jun 17, 2017

#### Answer:

I presume that $\text{suspension}$ means the same that it does in chemistry.

#### Explanation:

And a medicine that is a $\text{suspension}$ 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.
