  My understanding is that quinine is used to treat malaria...I've never heard of it being used to treat ADD or ADHD.
No quinine is more for malaria. It is an anti-protozoal. Mixing antibiotics with quinine is not the best idea. It increases antibiotics side effects.
  It has been used to treat malaria (sometimes called "ague" in history), but isn't always effective for it nowadays. (The strains mutate and evolve quickly.)

  The quinine bush, also called bearbrush and feverbush, is an evergreen shrub of the silk-tassel family found on dry slopes from central California to Oregon. The leaves have some of the same medicinal properties as the drug quinine, which comes from the bark of the cinchona tree.
hope this isn't someone from charter.
  Quinine has no effect on Methadone detoxification.
That is the correct spelling of "quinine" (alkaloid from tree bark used medicinally).
  It is a carbonated beverage flavored with quinine. Also called tonic water
You can figure this question out by looking up quinine to find its chemical formula. The number of moles of hydrogen will be the number of hydrogen in the chemical formula. Once you see the chemical formula is C20H24N2O2 then you know that there are 24 moles of hydrogen for every one mole of quinine...
  == Quinine for RLS ==   It's the quinine itself that helps RLS (whether its in capsules or some other form, not just quinine water). Quinine has been used for years (since WW II) for nocturnal leg cramps. It helps by vasodilation (relaxes smooth muscle which causes increased blood flow)....
The equation of quinine is C20H24N2O2, so all we do is multiply 24  Hydrogen atoms by Avagadro's number (6.02E23). 24 x 6.02E23 =  1.448E25.
Not anymore except Beverly, a specific coca cola. However, cocacola used to contain quinine.
The word was first used circa 1826. It comes from the Spanish word quina, meaning "cinchona bark" (from which it is extracted), from Quechua (Peru) kina.

Yes with gin in it ....it's a relaxant and anti depressive.
The clarity of this question is not clear. I will assume grams and possibly moles as that number does not look like a number of atoms. Grams first, then moles. 4.0 X 102 grams quinine (1 moleC20H2N2O2/302.236 grams)(2 moles N/1 mole C20H2N2O2) = 2.6 moles nitrogen =============== Pretty much the...
2.0 X 10 -2 moles C20H24N2O2 (2 moles N/1 mole C20H24N2O2) = 4.0 X 10 -2 moles of nitrogen ====================
Quinine tablets are used for the disease Malaria and also for leg cramps. Quinine tablets are by prescription only and can't be bought over the counter.
  i am not really sure, but i hope not because im 13 and just drank a huge glass of what i thought was tonic water and i now found out it is quinine. if anyone knows if it is acholol or not will you please answer.
Quinine is a drug used to treat malaria. It is neither a stimulant nor a depressant.
  Bark of the Chinchona tree, indigenous to South America.
The fluorescence of quinine is stronger in sulfuric acid solutions.
Quinine is measured in milligrams.
Quinine: C20H24N2O21 mole Quinine contains 24 moles of hydrogen0.8 moles of Quinine contains 24*0.8 = 19.2 moles of hydrogen
Quinine is a drug with chemical formulaC 20 H 24 N 2 O 2 . In eachmolecule of quinine there are 20 carbon atoms. Thus in 4.0 moles ofquinine, there would be 80 moles of carbon.
  == Answer ==   There are 80mg in 1 liter of Quine Water, so figure it out.
Quinine - 1917 was released on: USA: 20 May 1917
a little bit, it is in heroin, and heroin is addictive
  Quinine has been shown to cause birth defects when taken as early as the 1st trimester. It would be safe to eliminate it from your diet altogether.

Quinine comes from the bark of the cinchona tree.
  hmm tricky   it should be preserved so that it doesnt go out of date ....   durhhh
Basic   "is alkaline to litmus, but not to phenolphthalein. Its solution in  diluted sulphuric acid has a strong blue fluorescence, perceptible  1 in 200,000, which is destroyed by the halogen acids,  hyposulphites, and other substances. Quinine is a strong base with  an alkaline reaction in...
The minimum level of quinine in soft drinks is 57mg/L in the UK but  varies from country to country, for instance, the Dutch have a  minimum of 40mg/L. The maximum is 100mg/L in the UK and Australia  but may also be different for other countries.

  it helps the fever when you come down with malaria, also as a preventable source for malaria as well.
 A substance such as quinine glows because when absorbed light photons release photons of another wavelength. When the absorbed photons are in the ultraviolet range and the triggered emission is in the visible spectrum, a substance will glow under black light.  
  From wikipedia: "Because of its relatively constant and well-known fluorescence quantum yield, quinine is also used in photochemistry as a common fluorescence standard" See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quinine and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tonic_water_uv.jpg
can you give a dog homeopathic quinine
Cinchona Tree (Cinchona officinalis)
Realistically? None. Homeopathic medications are heavily diluted. The quinine dilution is a 3x (or approximately 1.5 c) dilution. So for the sake of easy math lets say it's an even 2c dilution. That means the quinine is diluted 1 part quinine in 100 parts dilution (like water) and part of that...
I never heard of it. But quinine is easily available so you could prepare quinine water on your own. Use 100 ml/l as staring point.
It depends on the dose. Unless your living in a third world Country being treated for malaria, you should probably not consume large amounts of it.
  That would be Malaria, in French it literally means 'bad air'. At the time, gases or bad elements in the air were thought to be the source of the incurable disease. Now we know that mosquitoes carry it. I know malaria from an unfortunately intimate point of view: I caught a strain of it in...
