Tṛṣṇānigrahaṇa (तृष्णानिग्रहण) is the Sanskrit name for a group of medicinal plants, classified as “relieving thirst”, and originally composed by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna IV. The name is derived from the words tṛṣṇā, translating to “thirst”, and nigrahaṇa, referring to “suppressing”, “holding down”. It is a technical term used throughout Āyurveda. Examples of plants pertaining to this category include Nāgara (Cyperus partenuis), Dhāvayavāsaka (Hedysarum alhagi), Parpataka (Oldenlandia biflora) and Paṭola (Trichosanthes dioica). The collection of herbs named Tṛṣṇānigrahaṇa is one of the fifty Mahākaṣāya.Source: gurumukhi.ru: Ayurveda glossary of terms
