Vinegar of Ipecacuanha. Br. 1898. Acetum Ipecacuanhae.—"Liquid Extract of Ipecacuanha, 1 fluidounce (Imperial measure) or 50 mils; alcohol (90 per cent.), 2 fluidounces (Imperial measure) or 100 mils; Diluted Acetic Acid, 17 fluid-ounces (Imperial measure) or 850 mils. Mix; filter, and, if necessary, add sufficient diluted acetic acid to produce one pint (Imperial measure) or one thousand mils of the Vinegar of Ipecacuanha." Br., 1898. Diluted Acetic Acid is a good menstruum for ipecacuanha, and this vinegar will doubtless prove effective as an expectorant. (For uses see Ipecacuanha.) Dose, five to forty minims (0.3 to 2.5. mils).
