Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Chininum Sulphuricum in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.



Sulphate of Quinine. (C20H24N2O2)2 H2SO4 15H2O. Trituration.

sallow complexion, emaciation, deafness and singing in the ears, enlarged spleen, disposition to shiver, and great debility. Periodicity is extremely well marked, the attacks returning at the same hour each day. In intermittents the onset may anticipate. Skin flaccid and sensitive to touch. Red rash over whole body, with severe stinging, followed by desquamation. Other prominent symptoms are Headache extending from occiput to forehead. Whirling in the head like a mill-wheel. Twitching of left eyelid, agg. in the evening. Aphthae in weakly people. Tartar on teeth. Hunger at night. Prolapse of rectum, especially in children. Haematuria and haemoglobinuria. ("Black-water fever" has been developed through administering Chi. Sulphur sul. in intermittents. Koch deserves much credit for showing that the worst features of African fevers are due to over-dosing with Quinine and not to the disease). E W. Sawyer (Med. Advance, 1887) relates this instructive history He learned from his cook that her brother (aet. 16) could not take a particle of Quinine without causing a profuse flow of blood with the urine, sometimes within half an hour, always without pain. This had followed every time his doctors had tried to "break his ague" with Quinine. A year later a farmer's wife, aet. 60, came to Dr. Sawyer to be treated for bloody urine unattended with pain or uneasiness. She attributed it to strain from walking two miles on a slippery road. She had been for months under Hygienist treatment without benefit, and was alarmingly weak from loss of blood. Rhus Tox Rhus 200, Ham. 1x, Erigeron Canadense Erig. 1x, Chi. 1x, Ferrum Muriaticum Fer. mur. 2x were given in succession in vain. At last, calling to mind the case of the youth, he gave Chi. Sulphur sul. in 1 / 16 gr. doses three times a day, and a prompt cure was effected. Chi. Sulphur sul. causes painfulness and swelling of varicose veins during a chill. (Julius E. Schmitt cured a case on this last indication.) Great sensitiveness to external influences. All discharges debilitating. Weak and nervous.

pressure amel. Wants to lie down. Motion = chilliness. Stooping = giddiness. Bending forward amel. Sleeplessness and over-stimulation of nervous system.

Lancinations in the chest, in the direction of the heart, immediately after a meal.

in the l. side of the chest, preventing a deep inspiration.

which seem endeavouring to pass out of the chest, esp. on lying or sitting down, disappearing while walking or standing upright.

in the r. side of the chest, extending upwards towards the shoulder, cutting short the breath, mitigated by bending forward.

Cutting pains in the abdomen, without evacuation in the superior part of the abdomen, sometimes with great lassitude, in the superior part of the abdomen and umbilical region.

sometimes in the evening with flatus, and movement in the abdomen, with loose, fetid stools, like pap, and emission of fetid wind, sometimes chiefly in the morning, on rising.


Sulphuric acid and Sulphur Sulphur are themselves in the first rank of periodic remedies, and combined with the chief alkaloid of China China they enhance the powerful periodic properties of that drug. In old-school practice the Sulphate of Quinine has almost entirely taken the place of the crude Bark as a remedy. Chin. Sulphur sul. closely resembles China China in its effects, but as it has been proved separately, and as observations of the effects of over-dosing have supplied many additional symptoms, the homoeopathist has plenty of guidance in the selection of one in preference to the other. Chi. Sulphur sul. is even more powerful as an antiseptic than China China, and it is probable that it is in virtue of its property of antagonising the malarial poison that it suppresses intermittent fever when it does not cure. It only cures when the fever corresponds to its own type. When a fever is "suppressed" there is generally air unholy alliance between disease-force and drug-force, which is expended on some part of the organism, resulting at times in lifelong ill-health. The "Quinine cachexia" is well known
