GENERAL

General

Native Sulphide of Antimony. Sb2 S3.

Antimonium Arsenicicum Antim. crud. corresponds in a sense to the race of swine, as Arsenicum Album Arsenic does to horses and Pulsatilla Pulsatilla to sheep. It is preeminently a scrofulous medicine, corresponding to gross constitutions with tendency to rough scaling skin with horny patches. With these horny patches is great tenderness, the patient can hardly bear to walk on them. Analagous to these horny excrescences are warts, and Antimonium Crudum Ant c. has cured many cases of these. A student, 17, had twenty-three on right hand and thirty four on left, mainly on backs and fingers, but a few on interior surface of fingers. In addition redness and inflammation of eyelids. Cured in seven weeks with Antimonium Crudum Ant. c. 200x. In the same category may be mentioned the tendency of the nails to grow in splits. Antimonium Crudum Ant. crud. is specially suited to infants and children (with coated moist white tongues) and also to elderly persons. Tendency to grow fat. When symptoms recur they change their locality or go from one side of the body to the other. Left side predominates, especially lower left and upper right. Among special symptoms are Itching of scalp and falling out of hair. Tendency to take cold about head. Scrofulous ophthalmia, canthi especially affected (Graphites Graph. the whole margin). Otorrhoea. Moist eruption behind ears (Graphites Graph.). Slight noises startle. Nose-bleed with vertigo.

after headache. after rush of blood to head. Children are peevish, won't bear to be touched or looked at. Adults are sulky or sad. Weeping and impressionable. Sentimental mood by moonlight. Amativeness. Suicidal. Gastric and remittent fevers, and fevers of children, with great thirst and the characteristic white tongue. The fever runs higher at night. The child is cross, but unlike the Chamomilla Cham. patient, who wants to be carried, this will scream and show temper at every little attention. There is a form of diarrhoea which alternates with constipation, often found in old people, to which Antimonium Crudum Ant. crud. corresponds. "Stomach weak, digestion easily disturbed, in old people." It cures many cases of mucous piles continuous oozing, staining linen. In connection with the intolerance of wine of the remedy, it may be mentioned that in one case it produced a feeling of intoxication like that of alcohol, so that the patient refused to take any more of it. A number of nervous symptoms appear in the provings.

restlessness, jerking of muscles, &c. Dr. M. Jousset has recorded a severe case of chorea which resisted all the usual remedies and was cured with Antimonium Crudum Ant. crud. prescribed on the digestive symptoms, particularly the characteristic white tongue. A notable characteristic of Antimonium Crudum Ant. crud. is the thickly coated tongue. Generally it is thick and white.

milky-white. or like whitewash evenly laid. The edges may be red and sore. Sore, cracked and crusty nostrils and corners of mouth. Abnormal hunger.

not relieved by eating.

emptiness at epigastrium and want of animal heat. Disgust for all foods. Nursing children throw up a little sour milk as soon as they take the breast or bottle (AEthus c., after vomiting the child sleeps and wakes hungry; Antimonium Crudum Ant. c. the child refuses to nurse again). The Sulphur sulphur element in Antimonium Crudum Ant. crud. is strongly pronounced in the provings as in the constipation and other intestinal disorders of the drug. agg. By heat is a marked characteristic (Apis Mel Apis, Pulsatilla Puls., Chamomilla Cham., Secale Cornutum Secale, Camphora Camph.).

also agg. from cold washing (less severe after warm washing), from cold water and cold food. In spite of the agg. from heat there is great sensitiveness to cold, hence it is suitable to the hydrogenoid constitutions. Moonlight agg. mental symptoms. Many symptoms are agg. at night. agg. By touch. agg. From wine, especially sour wine.

from vinegar and acids (though tamarind water does not disagree).

from fruits. agg. From pork, bread, and pastry. amel. By rest, by lying down.

agg. rising up. agg. ascending stairs.
