Having noticed in the December THERAPEUTIST an article by Dr. Henry Perry on the use of nux vomica for sea sickness, this has suggested to me my own treatment, which I have learned to depend upon.

In sea sickness or car sickness I have never found anything to equal cocculus indicus. I give it in the first decimal trituration in tablets. Give one tablet every half hour or hour until the patient is relieved. Or add ten drops of the tincture to half of a glass of water. Of this a teaspoonful should be given every twenty minutes. I trust this will prove as satisfactory to others as it has to me.
