Gentian

 Gentian

Gentian is an excellent tonic and stomachic; but when given in large doses, it acts as an aperient.

It is used internally  in all cases of general debility, and when combined with bark is used in intermittent fevers. It has also been employed in indigestion, and it is sometimes used, combined with sal volatile, in that disease; but, at other times alone, in the form of infusion. After diarrhœa, it proves a useful tonic. Its infusion is sometimes applied externally  to foul ulcers.

Dose , of the infusion , one and a half to two ounces; of the tincture , one to four drachms; of the extract , from ten to thirty grains.
