Differences between
Syrup
• Syrups are concentrated, aqueous
solution of sugar or a sugar substitute
that may or may not contain flavoring
agents and medicinal substances.
• Eg: Paracetamol Syrup
• Syrups are usually more sweet than
Elixirs.
• Syrups are more viscous than Elixirs.
• Syrups may or may not use alcohol
for solubility purpose.
• Syrups containing over 60% to 80% of
sugar are usually self preserving.
• Syrups are unable to maintain alcohol
soluble components in solution.
• Syrups are not preferred over Elixirs
for manufacturing.
Elixir
• Elixirs are clear, sweetened, flavored
hydro alcoholic preparations
intended for oral use and are usually
flavoured to enhance their
palatability. .
• Eg: Promethazine Elixir
• Elixirs are less sweet than Syrups.
• Elixirs are less viscous due to the low
content of sugar
• Elixirs use alcohol for solubility
purpose.
• Elixirs containing over 10% to 20% of
alcohol are usually self preserving.
• Elixirs are better able to maintain
water soluble and alcohol soluble
components in solution.
• Elixirs are preferred over Syrups for
manufacturing due to their stability
and ease of preparation.
