pharmaceutical form of lyophilized powder for a drinkable solution
Explanation:
you can use the word lyophilised ( written with s or with z). It is perfectly correct in pharmaceutical jargon.
Lyophilization is a modern process used for preservation of food or other substances (blood, living tissue,serum,antibiotics,etc) by means of quickly freezing these at a low temperature (ca. -80ºC) followed by slow evaporation in vacuum.
I would use the above translation, specially if the text is aiming at doctors/pharmacists etc.

Explanation:
sion.
I find your translation okay if the preposition "in" is not involved ("in powder form"). For the rest, it's tacitly understood that a suspension is a liquid (drinkable) solution.
