Ammonii Carbonas.

Dose.—From five to twenty grains properly diluted with water.

Carbonate of Ammonia may be employed to fulfill all the indications of the ammoniacal preparations. It is a stimulant diaphoretic, and for this purpose may be advantageously employed in rheumatism, acute inflammations, and in the continued fevers. It has been employed in epilepsy with reputed advantage, in doses of from ten grains to a scruple. It has been recommended in diabetes, in scrofula, and to relieve venereal pains and nodes, but the evidence is not clear that it gives any more than temporary relief.
