Practitioners' Concerns Prompt Cipro Oral Suspension Labeling Change
Cipro® Oral Suspension (ciprofloxacin hydrochloride) has been the focus of several reports received by the USP Practitioners' Reporting NetworkSM (USP PRN®). Specifically, pharmacists have expressed concern about the product's packaging and labeling. The product consists of two separate bottles; the active ingredient, ciprofloxacin microcapsules in one bottle and a milky suspension as the diluent in another. Prior to dispensing, the microcapsules must be added to the diluent to create the oral suspension. The diluent bottle has two labels: The top label is informational and includes directions for mixing; it is removed prior to dispensing. The second label identifies the oral suspension after the medication is mixed. One pharmacist remarked that it is difficult to determine if the microcapsules have been added to the bottle of diluent because of the diluent suspension's milky appearance. Another pharmacist, citing the diluent’s milky appearance described an actual episode where the diluent alone was dispensed to the patient.

Explanation:
I think you can translate it as you have done, 'for oral suspension'. Though what I fail to understand is the idea of 'suspension' here.
