Have you ever used Saponinum? Yes No
Saponin, C32H54O18 (a glucoside; the active principle of many plants belonging to the Caryophyllaceae, Polygalaceae, etc.; principally obtained from Saponaria officinalis, Gypsophila, Struthium, Polygala Senega Senega, and Quillaja).
Preparation, Dilutions with water (which speedily decompose), or triturations.
Quite ill-natured and inclined to view matters in a disagreeable light.
did not seem able to feel settled enough to know what to do (fifth day).
the crossness became so intense, that I felt myself getting very unreasonable, especially as to food, which seemed all wrong in some way.
took a long ride and walk and tea away from home.
food tasted wrong still.
mental condition was improved after a long walk (sixth day). Felt more amiable, but the unsettled feeling remained (seventh day). All the symptoms disappeared gradually during the next week, except the mental condition, which continued, in a modified degree, for about sixteen days after last powder,.
After several days I began to be troubled with a difficulty which I never experienced before.
I found it almost impossible to recall the names of friends with whom I was perfectly familiar.
I also found great difficulty in remembering words which I wanted to use.
I found great trouble to express my thoughts in the most simple language on account of not being able to remember the most simple words with which I was perfectly familiar.
so marked as to cause me great trouble,.
After moving around, in the morning, a dull heavy sensation in head, mostly forehead, especially over left orbit near frontal prominence, aggravated by stooping.
eyeball sore and aches.
in a few hours the pain in head spread, running back to occiput.
great heat in frontal region, relieved by pressure and cold, and greatly aggravated by stooping or bending over (sixth day).
not so marked (seventh day),.
Severe headache in both temples, sensation of pressure from within outward, with throbbing, and in frontal region a dull heavy ache. Headache not a common symptom. Riding in the horse-cars was quite an aggravation both to head and back from the jar. The headache gradually disappeared during the morning (after two hours, second day).
headache quite severe during morning (third day),.
Discovered at night circular patches, about the size of a Argentum Metallicum silver dollar, of eruptions, feeling like small grains under the skin, between the upper part of shoulderblades.
there was no pain nor itching, and no inflammation beyond slight redness.
this continued, gradually disappearing, for about two weeks.
never had such before that I remember (after three days),.
A small pimple made its appearance upon the right malar bone, which was very painful (sixth day).
the eruption proves to be a boil of no respectable dimensions.
it interferes with mastication, with speech, and gives a great deal of intense throbbing pin, as well as a sensation of soreness and tenderness over the entire head, including the cervical glands of right side (eighth day).
there are three angry boils upon the neck, so located as to interfere with the neck dressing, and one in the hollow of the back of the neck, the latter being violently painful, and sending out shooting pains to the vertex and to outer side.
there are also numerous boils on the abdominal walls, as well as on the ilium, varying in size and disposition (eleventh day).
boil on the face is better.
those on the neck still painful, and upon opening one considerable blood, and but little purulent matter, exuded.
those upon the lower part of the body are in all stages of progress.
they are increasing in number and in degree of pain, so that either sitting, standing, or lying, the pain and discomfort are unendurable (thirteenth day).
the boils are not so painful, and some of the red spots which appeared, and which promised to be boils, have disappeared (sixteenth day),.
Tickling sensation confined to single spots on inside little finger (left hand), with increase of sensation already described in hands and feet.
feel as when recovering after having been in the condition commonly called "sleeping of the limbs;" crawling-tickling sensation in various parts of the body, as from contact of fleas, first on back part of head, then on leg and genital organs, with irresistible desire to scratch the part, which at once relieves, as does moving about.
tickling felt on shoulder and nates, in fact all parts of the body seem to be subject to this peculiar sensation (after one hour and a half, second day),.
In the afternoon, while out walking, could with difficulty get home, my back and limbs felt so very tired.
it seemed as if my ordinary walking-boots weighed several pounds more than usual, and it was with great effort that I could lift my feet enough to get upstairs after reaching home.
after resting for some time this excessive fatigue passed off (second day),.
Severe pain of dull character in small of back, and sense of weight there also, as if all my clothing were hanging from back.
this sense of supporting a heavy weight extended to hip and even down to the knees.
riding in the horse-cars was quite an aggravation both to head and back from the jar, yet felt a very strong disinclination to exert myself enough to get out of the car.
the pain in the back continued, and seemed to prevent my standing erect, in the afternoon.
pressure upon the sacral region was an amelioration (after two hours, second day).
pain in back, but not very marked (third day),.
When awake, at about 3 A.M., felt quite severe abdominal colic, which lasted but a short time. On arising, about 6 A.M., same day, was attacked with the same pain, so severely that I went back to bed again.
it passed off in about half an hour, when I arose, feeling as well as usual.
this was a steady severe pain, felt all through the abdomen.
no production of gas or flatus.
the same night, on retiring, pain returned slightly, which was the last of pains of any kind (fifth day),.
For twenty-four hours preceding the menses she was in quite a little distress, with colic, cramps, and a profuse watery leucorrhoea.
when the menses were established the pain was less in intensity, but the same in character.
the period lasted four days, and the pain was persistent to the last, leaving her quite weak and very much depressed in spirits (after seven days),.
In each experiment he injected 0.1 gram of Saponin into the inner side of his left thigh. The immediate local effect was development of a cutaneous inflammation resembling erysipelas, but much more painful. This inflammation increased in violence for twenty-four hours, remained stationary for the same length of time, and then diminished rapidly. The general symptoms produced by this violent local irritation were the same as would be excited by any very painful injection. The specific local effects of the Saponin, anaesthesia of the point of injection to other irritants, set in about fifteen minutes after the injection, and persisted less than fifteen minutes. The area of the anaesthesia was identical with that of the paleness caused by the injected solution, i. e., it extended as far as the Saponin solution spread in the subcutaneous tissue, and bathed directly the ends of the nerves. Of the specific general effects of the drug the most important was undoubtedly its action on the temperature. This rose steadily for three hours, and then fell gradually to the normal point, which it reached within twenty-four hours. For the next two days there was some fever, but on the fifth day the temperature was far below the normal point, reaching the collapse point of 93°. The pulse also was somewhat elevated the first three days, and fell on the fifth day to 65 per minute. The rise in the temperature during the first three days was evidently due to the violent local inflammation, and it would have been much more excessive had it not been for the specific depressing action of the drug on the pulse and temperature.
this manifested itself in its full power on the fifth day, after the local inflammation had subsided. Other general effects of the drug were, marked bodily and mental depression, somnolence, and salivation. The pain, exophthalmus, and strabismus of the left eye, and the greater depression of the temperature on the left side (2 4/5° on the fifth day), must be ascribed to direct alteration of the nerve-centres, while the pain in the knee and the swelling of the glands in the left groin, were evidently due to direct transmission of inflammation,.
A glucosidal principle found in Quillaya, Yucca, Senega, Dioscorea and other plants. Tired, indifferent. PAIN IN LEFT TEMPLE, EYE, photophobia, hot stitches deep in eye. Fifth nerve affections. Migraine. Much pain BEFORE the menstrual flow; severe sore throat, worse right side; tonsils swollen, worse in warm room. Sharp burning taste and violent sneezing.
Saponin. has had a somewhat extensive proving (in potencies ranging from 1x to 30th), conducted by A. J. Hills. One prover, who took the 30th, for many years a sufferer from articular rheumatism, had none of his usual pains during the proving, and a great enlargement of the left knee was entirely removed. Two female provers had marked disturbance of the menstrual functions, especially pain and sufferings before the flow. A miliary eruption, and colic and leucorrhoea before the menses, pain better but not removed when the flow was established. Severe sore throat, agg. right side, was experienced by several provers, and Hills had so much swelling of the tonsils that he was obliged to abandon the proving. Nausea and vomiting, colic and diarrhoea, were among the symptoms, and a particular one was "nausea more in oesophagus and throat, agg. in a warm room." This agg. by warmth was met with in relation to many symptoms, and is probably a keynote. At the same time there was much chilliness, and lowered temperature is a characteristic feature. One of the provers who took the 12th had had his temperature reduced to 96° on the second day. Allen (Appendix) records an experiment which bears on this 0.1 gramme of Saponin. was injected into the left thigh of a man. The immediate effect was to produce intense local inflammation resembling erysipelas, but much more painful.
the pain extended to knee and hip, and the glands of the groin swelled. For the first three hours there was rapid increase of temperature, which fell to normal in twenty-four hours. The next two days there was a little fever, evidently kept up by the local irritation, but by the fifth day the temperature had fallen to 93° and the pulse to 65. (The intense local irritation bears on the skin symptoms of the proving, large numbers of boils being produced.) The other symptoms of this experiment were marked bodily and mental depression.
and exophthalmos and strabismus of the left eye (the side injected). Among the Peculiar Symptoms of Sap. are Involuntary emission of urine when walking. Roughness of mucous membrane of mouth, with raised papillae on palate and tongue. Strawberry tongue. The symptoms were markedly agg. by moving.
even motion of the eyes agg. mental labour. agg. By warmth. amel. By cold.
by cold bathing. while sitting. agg. Swallowing. Desire to vomit and defecate, agg. when quiet. amel. By stool.
by onset of menses.
On returning home one cold night from place of amusement nausea in oesophagus and throat as soon as she got comfortably warm.
as nausea increased cold feeling began at tips of fingers and toes and slowly spread to abdomen, where they met, giving an electric-like shock.
then followed griping pain and diarrhoea and vomiting.
Temperature rose steadily for three hours (after subcutaneous injection of 0.1 grm. into inner l. thigh), then gradually fell to normal, which it reached in twenty-four hours.
for the next two days there was some fever, but on the fifth day the temperature was far below the normal, reaching the collapse point of 930.
the pulse, which was somewhat elevated at first, fell to 65 on the fifth day.
