Sodae Acetas.

Botanical name: 

Therapeutic Action.—Acetate of Soda is a mild diuretic, similar in its properties to Acetate of Potash, but not near so efficient in its action. It may be employed as a substitute for that salt, and may be exhibited with greater facility from the fact that it is not deliquescent. It is seldom used at the present day.

The American Eclectic Materia Medica and Therapeutics, 1898, was written by John M. Scudder, M.D.
