Usage conditions apply
The indications or uses for this product as provided by the manufacturer, or as found in contemporary medical literature, are:
For use in the same instances as Belladonna [nervous excitement, perverted special sense, twitching, convulsions and pain, excited mental state, hyperaesthesia of all sense, delirium, restless sleep, convulsive movements, dryness of mouth and throat with aversion to water, neuralgic pains that come and go suddenly, epileptic spasms followed by nausea and vomiting]. But atropia is less stimulating, less convulsant, and more decidedly hypnotic. Constipates less and affects contractility of the bladder more. It is less diaphoretic and more pruritic [causing itchiness]. [Pocket Manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica, Second Edition, 1903]
