syrup

 [sir´up]
a viscous concentrated solution of a sugar, such as sucrose, in water or other aqueous liquid; combined with other ingredients, such a solution is used as a flavored vehicle for medications. In common usage, the term is often expanded to include any oral dosage form (for example, an oral suspension) in a sweet and viscous vehicle.

syr·up

(sir'ŭp),
1. Refined molasses; the uncrystallizable saccharine solution left after the refining of sugar.
2. Any sweet fluid; a solution of sugar in water in any proportion.
3. A liquid preparation of medicinal or flavoring substances in a concentrated aqueous solution of a sugar, usually sucrose; other polyols, such as glycerin or sorbitol, may be present to retard crystallization of sucrose or to increase the solubility of added ingredients. When the syrup contains a medicinal substance, it is termed a medicated syrup; although a syrup tends (due to its very high [approximately 85%] sucrose content) to resist mold or bacterial contamination, a syrup may contain antimicrobial agents to prevent bacterial and mold growth.
