I. Pulv. Jalap.
--- Potassa supertartratis aa 3i-Cream of tartar.
Ferri sulphatis ass.-Green vitriol.
Tinct. senna, 5iv.
Aqum menthol sative, 3x.-Misce.
The dose is an ounce and a half for an adult at 6
A. M., and repeated at 11 A. M., daily.
For children the dose should be so regulated as to
produce two or three stools daily, not more. Its action
is that of purgative, tonic, and diuretic. Where your
patient is very costive, I have frequently added pulv.
scammnony comp. Dii to the mixture; and on the other
hand, where they are easily purged, we substitute com-
pound tincture of cardamon for the tincture of senna;
and if there be any disposition to paroxsyms of inter-
mittent fever, I add to the mixture from a scruple to a
drachm of quinine. I continue this for ten days, then
alternate with small doses of podophyllin, and tinct.
ferri. muriat, (which is muriatic tinct. iron,) 20 drops
in a wine glass full of water, with 5i of tinct. of gen-
tian comp. at 7, and repeated at 11 A. M. These should
be used for about five days, when you should return to
the spleen mixture if the case is not relieved.
The following remedy has some celebrity in affections
of the spleen.
]. Pulv. Cinchona, si-Peruvian bark.
Cream tartar, 3i.
Nit. potash, 5ii.-Nitre.
Mix and triturate intimately together, and then take
a tea-spoonful before each meal.
Here’s what’s next.
