Cupric Arsenite in Diarrhea.
In the treatment of that form of diarrhea of children common in summer, in which there is nausea or vomiting accompanying large copious watery discharges, in which there is an amount of greenish, fecal matter, I give very minute doses of the arsenite of copper frequently repeated. The dose is about the one one-thousandth of a grain. The doses must be frequently repeated. I find this a specific remedy in this form of diarrhea.
