bromide

 [bro´mīd]
any binary compound of bromine. Bromides produce depression of the central nervous system, and were once widely used for their sedative effect; because overdosage causes serious mental disturbances they are now seldom used, except occasionally in grand mal seizures. See also bromism.

bro·mide

(brō'mīd),
The anion Br-; salt of hydrogen bromide (HBr); several salts formerly used as sedatives, hypnotics, and anticonvulsants.

bromide

An chemical compound containing a bromine ion Br-; once used as a hypnotic and sedative and for headaches—e.g., Bromo-Seltzer. It was withdrawn from human use in 1975 due to chronic toxicity. It is of current interest as an industrial toxin—e.g., methyl bromide, which is used as a solvent, degreaser and fumigant.

bro·mide

(brō'mīd)
The anion Br-; salt of hydrogen bromide (HBr); several salts formerly used as sedatives, hypnotics, and anticonvulsants.
