  GENERAL

General

Euphorbia hypericifolia, Linn.

Natural order, Euphorbiaceae. Common name, Spurge.

Preparation, Tincture of the whole plant.

Authority. Dr. True, Eclectic Med. Journ., 1875, p. 260, effects of 1/2 pint of infusion of 1/2 oz. of dried herb in a pint of water.

I experienced a sensation of fulness in the frontal part of the head, and also through the lateral portions, with headache similar to that produced by Cimicifuga Racemosa Cimicifuga, but not so severe.

the pain seemed to centre at the crown of the head, but there was a feeling of heat above the eyes that was very characteristic.

there was no ringing in the ears or vertigo, but the head symptoms were of that degree of positiveness, that it was with difficulty I could fix my mind on anything else but the headache.

the maximum of the feeling was about two hours after taking the medicine, and it subsided in about three and a half hours, and was succeeded by a feeling of languor and drowsiness which lasted several hours, but no sleep was produced by it.

While the head symptoms existed there was a feeling of unpleasant fulness and oppression at the epigastrium, and I was compelled to take physic the second day for the constipation it had caused. (He also got the same symptom of epigastric oppression from two drachms of the tincture.)
