Alkalies—sodium salicylate, potassium bicarbonate, liquor potassæ, and lithium carbonate.
In my opinion it deserves an extended employment in conjunction with early and full doses of the sodium salicylate.
In a certain number of cases of muscular rheumatism the sodium salicylate acts promptly and well.
Merck's sodium salicylate is the only brand which yields a clear and colorless solut.
It is evident, however, that hexamethylenamin, sodium iodid and sodium salicylate do not.
The soluble compound which is formed is generally considered to be a double salt of theobromin sodium and sodium salicylate.
Salicylic acid is calculated and reported as sodium salicylate.
The solution gives tests for sodium, borate, and salicylate and therefore probably contains sodium borate and sodium salicylate.
Sodium bicarbonate or sodium salicylate may be substituted for the sodium borate.
Especially objectionable are the fixed proportion mixtures of sodium iodid with sodium salicylate and with hexamethylenamin.
