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

Acts on circular muscular fibers, hence constrictions. It is the heart and arteries especially that at once respond to the influence of Cactus Grandiflorus, producing very characteristic Constrictions as of an Iron band. This sensation is found in various places, oesophagus, bladder, etc. The mental symptoms produced correspond to those found when there are heart affections, sadness, and melancholy. Hemorrhage, constrictions, periodicity, and Spasmodic pains. Whole body feels as if caged, each wire being twisted tighter. Atheromatous arteries and weak heart. Congestions; irregular distribution of blood. Favors formation of clots speedily. Great periodicity. Toxic goitre with cardiac symptoms. Cactus is pulseless, panting and prostrated.
BETTER, open air.
WORSE, about noon, lying on left side; walking, going upstairs, 11 a.m. and 11 p.m.
Antidotes: Acon.; Camph.; China.
Compare: Digital.; Spigel.; Convallar.; Kalmia; Naja; Magnol.
