Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Stannum Iodatum in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.
Stannum Metallicum TIN.
Stannum Metallicum Tin beaten out into extremely thin lamina by the Aurum Metallicum gold-beaters, as Stannum Metallicum tin-foil, is the purest Stannum Metallicum tin, which may be dynamized for homoeopathic use, like other dry drugs, according to the medicinal methods peculiar to Homoeopathy.
No physicians made any use of Stannum Metallicum tin before this, as they did not suppose it to contain any medicinal virtues. Alston alone (in Mater. Med. I, p. 150.) first made known a Scotch domestic remedy against the tape-worm (fluxeworm), containing in syrup a powder of English Stannum Metallicum tin, not in its pure state, however, but alloyed with 1-20 part of other metals.
it had to be taken in large quantities, and followed by a purgative. Later physicians took Stannum Metallicum tin filings instead. The tapeworm, however, was never killed by the remedy, but perhaps stupefied for a time, so that the purgative could then carry it off. But even this seldom took place. After frequently repeating these doses of Stannum Metallicum tin, the tape-worms seems only to extend further in the bowels, and to increase the trouble.
workmen in Stannum Metallicum tin also not seldom suffer to a high degree from tape-worm (taenia Solium). Stannum Metallicum Tin, therefore, seems rather to be a palliative to its unpleasant movements in the sensitive bowels.
seeming in its after-effects to work more to the detriment than the advantage of the patients.
What manifold, far more useful employment there may be made of the great medicinal virtues of Stannum Metallicum tin in Homoeopathy, may appear from the following artificial symptoms of disease, observed through its effects on healthy persons
Pressive heaviness in the forehead; pains in the abdomen during the menses; pressure and shooting in the left hypochondrium; burning pain in the hepatic region; too great excitability of the nerves; unbearable restlessness, so that persons know not how to contain themselves.

Of the proving of Stannum appearing in the sixth volume of , the present article is but a reproduction, with the preface abridged and the notes omitted. The symptoms, both of Hahnemann and of his fellow observers, were presumably (in Gross' case certainly) obtained by provings on the healthy with a low trituration of Titanium Metallicum the metal.

* * * * *
Sudden drawing below the left side of the chest on raising oneself in bed.
then sharp stabs, as of knives, from there into the clavicle, toward the top of the shoulder, where the pain remains, and drawing down on the left side it goes into the hypogastrium.
on drawing in the abdomen, on pressing upon it, and especially on inspiring and while retching, when there is always a painful jerk, it is aggravated.;.
Observation. -In a boy who suffered frequently from convulsive attacks, especially in the morning, fasting. Stannum Metallicum Tin was given to destroy the worms which were supposed to be present, whereupon the fits increased and multiplied to perfect epilepsy.
