(From to draw). Medicines which draw the fluids more copiously into the parts to which they are applied, and therefore, strictly, a term of the same meaning as attrahentia; but as the effect of the epispastics is commonly that of exciting blisters, the term is often employed for that of vesica-toriaand vesicantia.
