For several years I have used both of the two following methods in my various cases of urinary incontinence. I cannot give the specific indications for either of them as definitely as I should. In five cases which were very hard to benefit by other remedies, I gave two dram doses of eryngium, in water, every two hours. These very large doses accomplished a cure where small doses produced no results.
In one case—a girl nineteen years old who had suffered for fourteen years—I gave a teaspoonful of the following prescription every three hours, with satisfactory results. Rx Specific belladonna, twenty drops; saw palmetto, one ounce; water, three ounces. Mix. I am inclined to think the large doses were productive of the good results obtained in these stubborn cases. I have given the same remedies often in smaller doses with good results, but in these cases the large doses were necessary.
