Lantana. Lantana brasiliensis Link. Yerba Sagrada. (Fam. Verbenaceae.)—This Brazilian plant contains, according to Negrete, an alkaloid, lantanine, which is actively antiperiodic in doses of from fifteen to thirty grains (1.0-2.0 Gm.) in the twenty-four hours, given directly after the paroxysm. It is also claimed to be an intestinal antiseptic. (T. G., 1885.) Lantana camara L., known in the West Indies as sage tree or wild sage, contains an alkaloid, lantanine, said to resemble quinine in its action.
