Spasm of the Glottis.

For the cure of spasm of the glottis when caused by eructations from the stomach, I have found the following prescription to be satisfactory. It is necessary that the underlying conditions in the stomach be entirely removed. At the same time, an antispasmodic must be given to relieve the existing conditions, which are in themselves very distressing:

Specific Hydrastis, dr. 1
Specific Gelsemium, dr. 1
Specific Collinsonia, drs. 2
Specific Arctium, drs. 4
Elixir, q. s., ozs. 4

Mix. Sig. Take a teaspoonful after each meal and at bedtime.
