HPUS label indication: Cramps

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

Spasmodic affections, cramps, convulsions, beginning in fingers and toes, violent, contractive, and intermitting pain, are some of the more marked expressions of the action of Cuprum Metallicum; and its curative range therefore includes tonic and clonic spasms, convulsions, and epileptic attacks. Chorea brought on by fright. Nausea greater than in any other remedy. In epilepsy, aura begins at knees, ascends to hypogastrium; then unconsciousness, foaming, and falling. Symptoms disposed to appear periodically and in groups. Complaints begin in left side ( Laches.) Tape worm (colloidal Cuprum 3x) Where eruptions strike in, as in scarlet fever, complaints may result, such as excessive vomiting, stupor, convulsions, which come within the sphere of this remedy. The pains are increased by movement and touch.
BETTER, during perspiration, drinking cold water.
WORSE, before menses; from vomiting, contact.
Antidotes: Bell.; Hepar; Camph. Cuprum Metallicum is found in Dulcamara., Staphisag., Conium and some other plants. Also in king-crab (Limulus).
