Asthmatic Bronchorrhea.

Botanical name: 

I have used agrimony in the treatment of asthmatic bronchorrhea for several years, It is applicable in those cases of nasal catarrh where the discharge is abundant and not purulent. Where it is mucopurulent I add the sulphide of calcium. This enhances the cure.

I adopted this course in my own case in which the old line remedies gave no relief. I have since tried it on other patients with excellent results. There are no bad after-effects such as are produced by opium.


COMMENT: The Doctor does not give us specific instructions as to the administration of the remedy, but as it is non-toxic, it may be administered in from five to forty minims of the specific remedy four or five times a day.

The dosage should be adapted to the individual patient. I should be glad to hear other reports on the action of the remedy in this condition.
