This section is from the "Elixirs And Flavoring Extracts. Their History, Formulae, & Methods of Preparation" book, by John Uri Lloyd. Also available from Amazon: Elixirs and flavoring extracts,: Their history, formulae, and methods of preparation;
Elixir of calisaya with iron, 8 fluidounces.
Elixir of lactophosphate of lime, 8 fluidounces.
Mix them together.
Each fluidrachm (teaspoonful) of the finished elixir contains one-half grain each of lactophosphate of lime and pyrophosphate of iron, and represents two grains of officinal calisaya. An elixir similar to the above, which is also about the same as "Wheeler's Elixir," was introduced by Mr. G. F. Butler in 1881.
The National Formulary uses lactate of calcium, phosphoric acid, and elixir of cinchona and iron. The strength of the elixir, however, conforms to that of our publication.
