I believe the following combination to be an unusual one in acute conditions where a diuretic is needed, especially where you cannot combine the diuretic agent with the other remedy. Add to the sedative from one to two drams each of specific cactus and specific asclepias. The diuretic influence of this combination is sometimes little less than marvelous, and the beauty of the suggestion is that there are almost no cases in which either of the remedies would exercise a detrimental influence.
