Sick headache. Pain commences in the back of the head, rises and spreads over the head, and settles down over the right eye (left eye, Spigelia Anthelmia Spigelia), with nausea and vomiting; patient wants to be in a dark room and perfectly quiet. I have made some fine cures in long-standing cases of habitual sick headaches of this kind with Sanguinaria Canadensis. It will probably cure, or greatly relieve, the ordinary American sick headache as often as any other remedy. I use the 200th. Loose cough, with badly smelling sputa.


Tincture in headaches; sixth potency in rheumatism.
