kaplan collection, medicine
A tonic expectorant, agreeable to the palate, and without nauseating properties. It is especially indicated in chronic sub acute inflammation of the bronchial mucous membrane, and in cases of paralysis of the bronchial muscles. Its effects in such cases are similar to the combined action of ipecac and balsam of Peru, its stimulating properties preponderating. One of its most remarkable properties is its power of completely destroying the bitterness of quinine, and it is often prescribed with reference to this property alone. -- from, Parke, Davis & Co.
