Occurrence—A concrete volatile oil (stearopten) order roxithromycin 150 mg on-line, obtained from the Camphor Laurel purchase roxithromycin 150mg mastercard, purified by sublimation buy 150mg roxithromycin overnight delivery, found in tough crystalline masses, white and translucent; easily powdered in alcohol or chloroform. Physiological Action—In its influence there is something of a diversity of opinion concerning the method of action of this agent. It is certainly a sedative with power to increase the tone and improve the functional activity of the nervous system. Therapy—It has long been used in hysteria to control the attacks and to relieve the nervous excitement, restlessness, nervous depression, melancholia and hypochondria. In sudden depression from exhaustion and the conditions of depression consequent upon neurasthenia, it serves a good purpose. In all forms of nervousness in women and in children and in the feeble it has long been in common use. It is a sovereign remedy for acute coryza—“cold in the head,” and may be inhaled or taken internally. In acute and chronic catarrh it has a tonic yet soothing effect upon the mucous membranes. It controls Ellingwood’s American Materia Medica, Therapeutics and Pharmacognosy - Page 132 hypersecretion and restores normal functional action. These facts are also true in catarrhal bronchitis, in asthma and in whooping cough. In these spasmodic coughs the antispasmodic influence of the agent is of prime importance. It is of service when added to cough syrups as a stimulating sedative in the persistent coughs of capillary bronchitis. It has a marked anaphrodisiac influence, and has been given freely in nymphomania, satyriasis and erotomania. It cures priapism, chordee, and in a general way reduces the power of erection and the sexual appetite. In sexual weakness and in nocturnal emissions accompanied with erotic excitement from over indulgence, with violent erections, it is of much use and may be combined with ergot to equalize the circulation of the organs. It is a stimulating diaphoretic in fevers, and in inflammatory disorders with inactivity of the sudoriferous glands. This is especially true in exanthematous fevers, and where there is mania in prostrating fevers. Its influence is marked in adynamic fevers where there is feeble, rapid heart action and irritable pulse, with dry skin and muttering delirium, with subsultus tendinum. It is combined with opium and ipecac in the well known Diaphoretic Powder, in the proportions of one part each of camphor, opium, and ipecac, with seven parts of the potassium sulphate. Occurrence—Formed by heating bromine and camphor in a sealed tube on a water bath. The crystalline product is dissolved and recrystallized, first from water, then from alcohol. Description—Prismatic crystals, colorless, with the odor and taste of camphor, permanent, soluble in alcohol, ether and chloroform, insoluble Ellingwood’s American Materia Medica, Therapeutics and Pharmacognosy - Page 133 in water. Administration—For children a good preparation is made by taking one part of the crystals and triturating it thoroughly with nine parts of the sugar of milk. Physiological Action—The agent has the properties of a stimulating sedative, exalting the nervous functions when depressed, when there is great restlessness, excitability or delirium. Therapy—It is prescribed in nervous excitement or extreme restlessness accompanying inflammatory disease or protracted fevers. It is an excellent remedy for children with the long train of symptoms resulting from irritation of the dental nerve. The indications are diarrhea, nausea, great restlessness, fullness of the circulation of the head, with heat, sleeping with half open eyes, rolling of the head, and tossing, crying but with little sharp cries. In fully developed cases of cholera infantum, with the extreme symptoms of involuntary watery discharges, cold extremities, pinched features, emaciation, apparently uncontrollable vomiting, this agent is given in full doses, and it will often meet alone the whole train of indications. In delirium tremens it has produced good results, and in mild cases of the delirium of protracted fevers, with restlessness, it will be found of advantage. It has been used in chorea, and in hysterical manifestations of an excitable character, and in nervous palpitation, and irregular heart action from reflex irritation. Physiological Action—This agent has long been used as a carminative and local gastric stimulant. Its rare properties have been overlooked by the profession and it has been assigned to its exact position by the masses of the people. Midwives and old nurses have long given a strong infusion of cinnamon to control postpartum hemorrhage, and it has been advised in “nose-bleed” and in flooding during miscarriage and in menorrhagia. Therapy—Cinnamon, in the experience of the writer, is a hemostatic of much power and is positively reliable in all passive hemorrhages. It is not advisable to combine it with the usual astringents, as ergot, geranium or epilobium, but it acts in perfect harmony with erigeron and to a certain extent with turpentine. German authorities claim that as soon as the menses or any uterine hemorrhage becomes excessive and produces exhaustion or causes alarm the decoction should be administered freely. It works to a better advantage in hemorrhage due to atonic conditions of the non-gravid womb, or where there is muscular relaxation, or a general flaccid state of the womb after delivery. It certainly restores tone to the uterine muscular structure and induces tonic contraction. It will also, Hale says, moderate hemorrhage not dependent on plethora, anemia or organic uterine disease.
