The Second Volume (revised) of the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India is presented herewith to the Government of India.

Preface

The Government of India constituted the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia Committee in 1962 for the purpose of preparing the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India with a view to provide standards for the commonly used Homoeopathic medicines. This Committee did the preliminary work in. preparing a comprehensive list of possible homoeopathic medicines and drafted the general notices and general instructions for the pharmacopoeia. It also prepared 180 monographs comprising the first volume which has since been published.

Introduction

The first volume of the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India providing official standards for 180 drugs was finalised in 1970 and has since been published. The second volume, covers another 100 homoeopathic drugs.

The Committee considered it necessary to make certain amendments in the general notices and general instructions contained in the first volume. These general notices are given in this volume. These are applicable to the contents of the first volume also. The format of the monographs has also been slightly changed in the second volume as under:- 1. The heading 'Chemical Symbol' has been deleted and only chemical formula has been given.
2. The heading 'Synonym' has been restricted in case where it relates to a true synonym and in other case it is replaced by common name. In case of chemicals alternate names have however been given without any specific title.
3. Part used has been mentioned after Description.
4. Under the heading 'History and authority' the first prover has been mentioned in the first place and the remaining authorities in alphabetical order.
5. The old Hahnemannian method of preparation has been discarded in favour of new" uniform method with specific drug strength which takes into consideration the moisture content of the drug, thus eliminating variation in standards. This method is applicable to most of the drugs and has been accepted by the Committee.
6. The Title 'Habitat' has been substituted by term 'Distribution', to convey appropriate meaning.

The material compiled in this volume as in the previous one has been freely drawn upon from the British Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia, American Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia, the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of United States, the German Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia and the Indian Pharmacopoeia and other relevant literature.

The Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia Committee also places on record the appreciation of the work done by the members of the various sub-Committees and the staff in bringing out this Volume.

The Committee is grateful in particular to the Drugs Controller (India), the Director, Central Drugs Laboratory, Calcutta, the Director, Central Indian Pharmacopoeial Laboratory, Ghaziabad and the Director Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia Laboratory, Ghaziabad who have from time to time offered their valuable suggestions and co-operation.
