"Podophyllum, in No. 40 powder, one thousand grammes [or 35 ounces av., 120 grains]. Prepare a Fluidextract by Type Process A, using alcohol as the menstruum." U. S.
The menstruum of the U. S. P. VIII fluid-extract which was alcohol 4, water 1, was changed to alcohol in the U. S. P. IX. This is a fluidextract which well represents the root, but is of very little use, since Podophyllum is much better administered in other forms.
Dose, from five to fifteen minims (0.3-0.9 mil).
