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



Duboisinum acts chiefly on the nervous system, eyes, upper respiratory tract. Recommended in pharyngitis sicca, with black, stringy mucus. It dilates the pupil, dries the mouth, checks perspiration, causes headache and drowsiness. On the eye it acts more promptly than Atropia Sulphurica Atropia, much stronger as a mydriatic. Red spot floats in the field of vision. Sensation as if stepping on empty space. Vertigo with pale face; not gastric in origin. Scarlet fever; locomotor ataxia. Palliative in exophthalmic goitre.

Duboisia myoporoides. Corkwood Tree. (Queensland.) N. O. Solanaceae. Tincture and solution of alkaloid prepared from extract of the leaves.

Throat dry. red. capillaries varicose.

no secretion of any kind visible.

in consequence of the dryness the follicles are very prominent, and the conformation of spinal column plainly visible.

epiglottis hyperaemic.

Third to twelfth potency.


Delirium. Drowsiness. Eyes dilated pupils. Locomotor ataxy. Mouth, dryness of. Paralysis. Presbyopia. Throat, dryness of. Vertigo. Vision, disorders of.


Duboisia belongs to the same order as Belladonna Belladonna, and its alkaloid, Sulphate of duboisia, has been used as a substitute for Atropine. Duboisinum's application to the eye has caused marked constitutional symptoms of fever, delirium, stupor, and dry mouth. A symptom which may prove a keynote is "a red spot floating in the field of vision." Guided by this, C. H. Helfrich cured a case of hyperaemia of optic nerve with Duboisin 3 (N. A. J. H., xiii. 267). Dryness of mucous membranes is very characteristic. Cool feeling in the eyes. Sensation as if stepping on empty space. Feeling of largeness in eyes, in tongue. Inability to stand with the eyes shut gives it a place in locomotor ataxy. It has also been proved.
