I wont say that one is more effective than the other - Many drugs come in different forms. Drugs to take by mouth can often be made in tablet and liquid form. The choice will usually be made to suit you. Some people prefer to take liquid medicine rather than tablets. If you are having difficulty swallowing, liquid medicine may be easier to take. Also, compare the strength of the two - It may be that one contains less active ingredient than the other.
