Imperfect vision, the peculiarity being that Half an object only could be seen at once. Giddiness with Vertical hemiopia. Also sexual weakness, with Too early ejaculation of semen in coitus.

Lower and middle potencies.
Materia medica entries of other remedies mentioning Titanium Metallicum
Stann-i > general
Of the proving of Stannum appearing in the sixth volume of , the present article is but a reproduction, with the preface abridged and the notes omitted. The symptoms, both of Hahnemann and of his fellow observers, were presumably (in Gross' case certainly) obtained by provings on the healthy with a low trituration of the metal.
Cupr > general
There is another symptom which Farrington thought very valuable, viz. "Mental and bodily exhaustion from overexertion of mind, or loss of sleep." This is similar to Cocculus and. Nux vomica. The other symptoms must decide between them. I have always used the metal instead of the acetate, because I used the potencies, and it acted promptly.
Ind > general
Indium (which receives its name from the Indigo blue line in the spectrum through which its presence was discovered in Zinc-blende) is a rare metal, nearly like lead in appearance and in softness. It has been proved under the direction of Bell, mostly in the potencies, and the symptoms mark it out as allied in action to Selenium and Titanium in its general action, and particularly in the male sexual sphere. There is diminished power and control.
Mang > general
In an article on Mang. by F. H. Pritchard (Minn. Hom. Mag., v. 151), who cites this case, the action of the metal is thus summarised ($51$) On mucous membranes congestion and increased as well as decreased secretions. (2) Liver a powerful cholagogue inducing inflammation and fatty degeneration. (3) Blood destroys red corpuscles and = anaemia. (4) Bones and periosteum sensitiveness of bones with periostitis. (5) Skin fissures.
Merc-d > general
Merc. dulc. is responsible for a large amount of the mercurialisation of the past and for some of the present. As a comparatively mild and slow-acting form of mercurial, it has none of the corrosive effects of the perchloride, but it has all the power of the metal in it nevertheless, and it has had its own share of disasters. For constipation and any affection which could be ascribed to the liver, blue pill was at one time about the only recognised remedy. Some homoeopaths have adopted a modification of this by prescribing Merc. dulc. 1x in two- or three-grain doses as a direct purgative. But as Merc. dulc. has caused both constipation and diarrhoea, it is probable that the action is roughly homoeopathic. The Schema is made up for the most part of toxicological and clinical symptoms.
Nicc > general
Nickel is found associated with Cobalt. It is said to have received its name (Nickel, the devil) from the miners, who considered it "false ore" as they were mining for copper. The word Cobalt (Kobold) has possibly a similar derivation. Nickel forms the chief ingredient in the alloy known as "German silver." It was proved by Nenning, and the pathogenesis contains some striking symptoms, many of which have been confirmed. Sir James Y. Simpson used the Sulphate of Nickel (NiSO4) in "periodic headaches of a very severe character," and the provings show that the metal and the carbonate are equally appropriate in this connection. H. Moser (Am. H., xxiii. 61) has cured cases when the pain is agg. 10 to 11 a.m., and may be so intense as to cause the patient to cry out.
Osm > general
Osmium is a metal of the Platinum group, in association with which it is always found. It is the heaviest of them all and the most refractory, having never been fused. It derives its name (όσμή odour) from the pungent odour of the fumes of Osmic acid, which are evolved in the process of separating Platinum from its ore, and the effects of which have supplied a number of valuable symptoms in cases recorded by J. G. Blackley (C. D. P.). In the arts it is used in the alloy with iridium (Iridosmium or Osmiridium) for making the tips of gold pens. Triturations of the pure metal have been proved. The symptoms of the metal and of the acid are taken together. The odour of Osm. closely resembles that of Chlorine, as also do its irritating effect on the respiratory mucous membrane. The odour imparted to the secretions is various it makes the urine smell like violets.
Plat-m > general
The original name of Platinum was "Platina," being a Spanish word meaning "like silver" (Plata being Spanish for silver). The metal was introduced into Europe from South America in the middle of the eighteenth century. It is always found in association with other metals, chiefly Rhodium, Osmium, Iridium, Palladium. Hahnemann was the first to think of it as a medicine, and his proving in the Chronic Diseases is the basis of our knowledge of its action. One characteristic symptom, either when found alone or in association with other conditions, has led to many cures with Plat.
Plb > general
particularly to persons of a dry, bilious constitution, with somewhat jaundiced complexion, irascible, hypochondriac, or disposed to religious monomania. (But children are by no means excluded. I have seen apparently hopeless cases of marasmus in infants with large, hard abdomens and extreme constipation cured with Plumb., usually in 3rd trituration of the metal or the acetate.) Teste mentions the following cases as having been successfully treated by him with Plumb. ($51$) Chronic cystitis. (2) Stricture after gonorrhoea. (3) Tenacious salivation (mercurial), agg. in damp weather, saturating pillow in sleep. (4) Excessively painful retraction of testes and penis, which seemed to re-enter hypogastrium (consequence of sexual excesses and repelled tetters). (5) Nightly bone pains (after failure of Merc, &c.). (6) Pulling and pressive chronic headache in forehead, agg. by mental labour.
Stront-c > general
Native Strontium Carbonate, a mineral named Strontianite, was first discovered in the lead-mines of Strontian in Argyllshire, from whence it received its name. It occurs in massive, fibrous, stellated, rarely orthorhombic crystals. The metal Strontium is dark yellow. Stro. c. varies in colour from white to yellow and pale green. It was proved by Nenning, Schreter, Seidel, Trincks, and Woost. Among the prominent symptoms were flushing in the face and violent pulsation of the arteries.
Arg-n > relationships
The main difference between the metal and the Nitrite, is, that the latter acts more on mucous membranes the skin, and especially on the bones and periosteum and must be beneficial to herpetic patients, and the former acts especially on the cartilages.
Plb > extremities, limbs
Loss of tactile sensibility on the anterior surface of the left wrist, left forearm, and lower half of left upper arm (the lead bar, when going into the furnace, slid over these parts). Tactile sensibility only diminished in the remaining portions of the left upper limb and in the palm of the right hand by which the metal was taken up,

but this was not inconsistent with my view of the case, under the supposition that the paralysis was due to the local and direct action of the metal. I asked him if he was right-handed. He answered in the affirmative. I then asked him to compress my hand in his right hand. He tried to comply.
Plb > general
after working in this way for awhile, these parts became covered with a grayish-black discoloration derived from contact with the metal. On re-examining the palm of the hand, we found two callosities on the inside of the knuckle-joints of the two paralyzed fingers, and none elsewhere. These sufficed to show that the patient told the truth, since these were the precise points most subject to friction during the process he had described to us,.
Sulph > generalities
The cutaneous transpiration, especially on the hands, smells strongly of Sulphur; all the metal articles he has about his person begin to turn black (one hundred and fifty-sixth day),
