Cholagogues, also colegon, (from bile, and to drive out or evacuate). By cholagogues the ancients meant only such purging medicines as expelled the bilious faeces. We retain the word for such purgatives as are found most useful when bile offends, or are of service when the liver is diseased. Of this kind are rhubarb and calomel, which are supposed to increase the bilious discharge more powerfully than any other medicine. Aloes and taraxacum have been considered as useful in occasioning the bile to pass freely into the intestines, though with little reason. See Cathartica.
