Fifteen to thirty drops in proper menstruum ½ to 1 hour before breakfast and just before retiring is the average dose for a child about 10 years old. This should be continued for 3 or 4 days followed by a good laxative at the expiration of this time. To be repeated after some days if not successful. It will act more powerfully if combined with spigelia and male fern.
