Flavored Syrup Vehicle
Ora-Sweet is a syrup vehicle used to simplify the process of flavoring and sweetening extemporaneous compounded oral preparations. Ora-Sweet allows the pharmacist to formulate elegant, sweetened products with minimum time and maximum dependability. Ora-Sweet is the modern version of simple syrup flavored with a citrus-berry blend for a highly palatable taste.
Ora-Sweet may be used alone or in combination with other agents. Ora-Sweet will retain its flavoring properties when diluted up to 50% with water or suspending agents. Its versatility makes it ideal for the flavoring of:
- Pediatric preparations
- Geriatric preparations
How to Use
Ora-Sweet is the ideal flavoring and sweetening agent for many suspensions, but it is specially formulated to complement Paddock's suspending vehicle Ora-Plus. Ora-Sweet and Ora- Plus can be combined in a 50/50 ratio to produce a pleasant tasting elegant suspension.
Ora-Sweet contains sucrose which acts as a sweetening agent. Small amounts of glycerin and sorbitol are added to prevent “cap lock” problems common to most syrups. Its flavoring agents help increase palatability. Ora-Sweet is buffered to a slightly acidic pH to help diminish degradation of medicinal agents through oxidation.
Purified water, sucrose, glycerin, sorbitol, and flavoring. Buffered with citric acid and sodium phosphate. Preserved with methylparaben and potassium sorbate.
