Thuja in Dysmenorrhea.
I recently had a persistent case of incontinence of urine in a young woman, who was also afflicted with dysmenorrhea of a severe and intractable character, it having existed for several years.
Without considering the menstrual disorder, I prescribed thuja in eight drop doses three times a day for the incontinence. Within sixty days, I had the satisfaction of knowing that the incontinence had been completely -cured and that the dysmenorrhea had also disappeared.
Not having observed that anyone has suggested thuja in the treatment of dysmenorrhea, I thought these suggestions might prove of value.

COMMENT: This is, indeed, a fortunate suggestion. If any other readers of THE THERAPEUTIST have used thuja in the treatment of painful menstruation, I wish they would immediately write me a report of the peculiarities attending the cases in order that we may be enabled to determine what class of cases this remedy will cure, if any.
