Physiological Action

This agent is a nerve depressant. A dose of one drachm, or less, in dogs, produces tremors, spasmodic muscular action, intoxication, and loss of sensibility; while large doses produce violent epileptoid seizures. Small doses act as a gentle stimulant to man, while larger doses cause headaches, cerebral disturbances, and clonic hysterical convulsions. When partaken of for some time the mental and physical powers are enfeebled, the virile power is lost in the male, while the menopause is premature in the female.


This remedy is of service in cases of EPILEPTIFORM CONVULSIONS, cerebral irritation, and infantile hysterical spasm. EPILEPSY that is preceded by nervous trembling, when there is distortion of the features, the pupils are equally dilated, and the patient is obliged to walk about.

He has hallucinations, with frightful visions, and becomes insane, idiotic, and brutal. He has cerebral VERTIGO with mental confusion and a tendency to fall backwards; wants the head low, and complains of a dull occipital headache.

There is hyperaemia of the brain, medulla, and spinal cord, with jerking of the upper extremities, trembling of the hands, sleeplessness accompanying typhoid fever, with hyperaemia at the base of the brain.

  12. Great blog post. Some tips i would like to contribute is that personal computer memory needs to be purchased if the computer still can’t cope with whatever you do with it. One can put in two good old ram boards having 1GB each, by way of example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should check the car maker’s documentation for own PC to make sure what type of memory space is required.

This is due to the fact that at the same time actually becoming more and more inexpensive, their computing power is growing to the point where they may be as strong as personal computers through just a few years ago.

  18. Thanks for your post on this weblog. From my own experience, often times softening way up a photograph may possibly provide the digital photographer with an amount of an inspired flare. Often however, that soft blur isn’t precisely what you had in your mind and can frequently spoil a normally good picture, especially if you consider enlarging it.
