Directions for compounding suspensions
Pre measure the volume of fluid needed less the volume of powder being used to make your suspension in a large syringe or graduate cylinder. Add pre weighed powder to a mortar & pestle or suitable mixing container with rounded bottom. Add small amounts of fluid to form a thick, viscous mass and mix while slowly adding approximately half the fluid until all the powder is incorporated into the suspension. Dilute to final volume by adding remaining fluid or flavored syrup and mix well.
