A Dysentery Formula.
I want to send in the following prescription for dysentery, as my contribution to "Therapeutic Facts" in your magnificent THERAPEUTIST:
|Spir. mentha pip.||dr. 1|
|Ar. spirit amm||drs. 2|
|Tr. opii, camph||drs. 4|
|Sat. sol. magnesia sulph.,||q.s. ozs. 3|
Mix. Sig: Two teaspoonfuls in a little water every three hours.
The taste of the mixture is not pleasant, but it has always cured my patients quickly, safely and very satisfactorily.
I read every number of the THERAPEUTIST from cover to cover.
Very truly yours,
JOHN W. LORENZ, M. D.
Errata (Therapeutist May 1908)
In Dr. Lorenz article on page 116 of the April number, in the formula the Aromatic spirit of ammonia should read Aromatic Sulphuric Acid.
