Andrographis. Br. Add. 1900. Andrographis paniculata Nees. (Fam. Acanthaceae.)—Under the name of Kiryat this plant is stated to be used to some extent in India as a bitter tonic, having similar properties to chiretta. It appears scarcely to enter commerce at all, although exposed in the shops of the herbalists. (See B. P. C., p. 122.) The Br. Add., 1900, recognized the infusion (Infusum Andrographidis, one ounce to a pint), dose, one-half to one fluidounce (15-30 mils); the concentrated liquor (Liquor Andrographidis Concentratus), dose, one-half to one fluidrachm (1.8-3.75 mils); and the tincture (Tinctura Andrographidis), dose, one-half to one fluidrachm (1.8-3.75 mils).
