Veratrum in Puerperal Convulsions.
I had a most persistent case of puerperal convulsions recently which I controlled with the use of veratrum. I gave the specific medicine hypodermically in from ten to fifteen drop doses at varying intervals from one to four hours.
During a period of two or three days I also gave 1/4 grain of morphin twice hypodermically, and once per orum.
