In the treatment of sciatica, especially if it seems to be of rheumatic origin, I have been in the habit of giving the following prescription, with the action of which I am very well satisfied:
- Specific apocynum drs . 3
- Water q. s ozs. 4
Mix. Sig: Take a teaspoonful in water every four hours.
In the treatment of sore nipples of any kind, I have obtained excellent results from the thorough application of the compound tincture of benzoin. Simple though this course may be, I have derived satisfaction from it.
