Therapeutic Applications.-Bromal hydrate has
analgesic and hypnotic properties, and is employed for
the same purposes as chloral, but it is more powerful
than the latter remedy.
Administration.-This drug is given in doses of from
2 to 5 grains (0.12 to 0.3 gramme).
A compound said to contain 75 per cent. of bromine.
It belongs to the anilid group, and is represented by
the formula C6H,Br3NH.HBr.
Physical Properties.-Bromamid appears in the form
of acicular crystals which are colorless, odorless, and
tasteless. The drug melts at 2430 F. (I 17.2 C.) and
volatilizes at 3I00 F. (I54.40 C.).
Solubility.-This drug is readily soluble in chloro-
form, ether, and the fixed oils, slightly soluble in alcohol,
but insoluble in either cold or hot water and in benzene.
Therapeutic Applications.-Bromamid has anti-
neuralgic and antipyretic properties. This remedy has
been used with advantage in rheumatic fever, typhoid
fever, and in the treatment of both acute and chronic
articular rheumatism. It has also been used with asserted
success -in several forms of neuralgia and in dropsy of
Administration.-The dose of bromamid is from Io
to 15 grains (o.6 to I gramme), and it is best given in
wafers, capsules, or in the form of emulsion; for chil-
dren the dose is from I to 5 grains (0.06 to 0.3 gramme).
The action of bromine upon equal parts of methylic
alcohol and caustic potash gives rise to the formation of
bromoform, a drug known also as tribromnomct/anc. This
body is analogous to chloroform, and when chemically
pure is represented by the formula CHBr3.
Physical Properties.-Bromoform is a colorless,
sweet, limpid liquid with an agreeable odor. It boils at
