took the infusion. "Its influence on the kidneys was apparent in two days, for the quantity of urine discharged in twenty-four hours amounted to two pints, and was soon increased to three and occasionally four pints.

a decided effect was produced upon the stomach which we had not looked for, namely, an increase of appetite.

the strength improved daily, the countenance became less sallow, and the abdomen did not begin to fill for several weeks.".

A young man, who had drank a pint of the infusion, "would have slept well if he had not been constantly waked by calls to make water."

An agreeable sensation was perceived in the stomach soon after taking it, followed in some instances by an extraordinary increase of appetite.

It has produced sickness at the stomach, so that the patient could not continue its use.

"A young woman, who took the extract, experienced great increase of appetite, as well as augmentation of the discharge of urine of a greenish color. She adds that at the same time she felt a most uncommon sensation in the small of her back in the region of the kidneys, sometimes on one side of the spine, and sometimes on the other, as if something were fluttering within, without occasioning pain or uneasiness of any sort.

she has never experienced the same sensation since she left off taking the medicine.".
