Aromatic spirit of Ammonia may be exhibited to fulfill the same indications as the simple spirit just named: on account of its more agreeable taste and smell, it is usually preferred to that preparation. It is administered in sick-headache when there is a languid state of the stomach, as a gastric stimulant; and is frequently used for the same purpose in nervous debility, hysteria, flatulent colic, and languid states of the system.
