Below are the strongest indications (i.e. symptoms) of Jaborandi (Pilocarpus) in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.
Jaborandi (Pilocarpus) is a powerful glandular stimulant and the most efficient diaphoretic. Its most important effects are diaphoresis, salivation and myosis. Hot flushes, nausea, salivation and profuse perspiration. The face, ears and neck become in a few minutes after a dose of Jaborandi (Pilocarpus) deeply flushed, and drops of perspiration break out all over the body while at the same time the mouth waters and saliva pours out in an almost continuous stream. Other secretions, lachrymal, nasal, bronchial and intestinal also but in less degree. The sweat and saliva produced by a single dose is often enormous in quantity, not infrequently half a pint.
Is homeopathic to Abnormal sweats, and has achieved great success in Night-sweats of consumptives. Acts upon the thyroid and its sudorific action may possibly be due to it. Exophthalmic goitre, with increased heart’s action and pulsation of arteries; tremors and nervousness; heat and sweating; bronchial irritation. A valuable remedy in limiting the duration of mumps.
Chiefly as a powerful and rapid diaphoretic. It is of most service in renal disease, especially with uraemia, eliminating both water, and urea. Scarlatinal dropsy. Contraindicated in HEART FAILURE, AND IN POST-PUERPERAL URAEMIA, and in senile cases.
