HPUS label indication: Fear

Below are the strongest indications of Aconitum Napellus in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.

A state of fear, anxiety; anguish of mind and body. Physical and mental restlessness, fright, is the most characteristic manifestation of Aconitum Napellus. Acute, sudden, and violent invasion, with fever, call for it. Does not want to be touched. Sudden and great sinking of strength. Complaints and tension caused by exposure to Dry, cold weather, draft of cold air, checked perspiration, also complaints from Very hot weather, especially gastro-intestinal disturbances, etc. First remedy in inflammation, inflammatory fevers. Serous membranes and muscular tissues affected markedly. Burning in internal parts; Tingling, coldness and numbness. Influenza. TENSION of arteries; emotional and physical mental tension explain many symptoms. When prescribing Aconite remember Aconite causes only functional disturbance, no evidence that it can produce tissue change - its action is brief and Shows no periodicity. Its sphere is in the beginning of an acute disease and not to be continued after pathological change comes. In Hyperaemia, congestion not after exudation has set in. Influenza (Influenzin).
BETTER in open air.
WORSE in warm room, in evening and Night; worse lying on affected side, from music, from tobacco-smoke, dry, cold winds.
Vinegar in large doses is antidotal to poisonous effects.
Acids, wine and Coffee, lemonade, and acid fruits modify its action.
Not indicated in malarial and low fevers or hectic and pyemic conditions, and in inflammations when they localize themselves. Sulphur often follows it. Compare Cham. AND Coffea Intense pain and sleeplessness.
Agrostis acts like Aconitum Napellus. in fever and inflammations, also Spiranthes.
Complementary: Coffea;’ Sulph. Sulphur may be considered a chronic Aconitum Napellus. Often completes a cure begun with Aconite.

It has proved valuable in cardia dyspnoea, neuralgia, and acute gout. Dyspnoea. Must sit up. Rapid respiration. Anxiety, with suffocation from feeling of paralysis in respiratory muscles. Cheyne-Stokes breathing. Quebracho (cardiac dyspnoea) ( Achyranthes. - A Mexican drug - very similar to Aconite in fevers, but of larger range, being also adapted to typhoidal states and intermittents. Muscular rheumatism.
