coffee for aggravationsCoffee for Aggravations
It happens sometimes, that the most violent pains are increased very much by the smallest dose of the suitable remedy ; in such cases give a spoonful of black coffee, and as soon as the aggravation has ceased, repeat the remedy. If made worse again, repeat the coffee, and so on until the improvement is permanent. A homoeopathic physician of the right stamp, a great master, wrote to the author, that he has given remedies in this way with the greatest success, Colocynthis and coffee for colic, Pulsatilla and Coffea for rheumatic pains in the limbs ; and Mercurius and coffee for faceache.

I remember that GV too mentions strong black coffee as a probable antidote.
Perhaps this was one of the alternatives in those days.
But the sixth edition was unknown then. The split dose as well as LMs are the methods to be followed in such cases.
