Elixirs are hydroalcoholic liquids that are clear, sweetened, aromatic, and intended for oral consumption. Ethyl alcohol (5–40%), water, glycerin or propylene glycol, flavouring, colouring, and an appropriate preservative are the major components of elixirs. The medicinal elixirs typically contain a strong medication, such as sedatives, antibiotics, or antihistamines. The flavoured elixirs are employed as flavours and carriers and contain no medication.
