Good to allay the excitement, act on the skin and promote 

perspiration; also a good expectorant powder in coughs, colds, 

pneumonia, and oppressed breathing. 

 

 

AGUE DROPS. 

 

Take quinine, twenty grains; water, one ounce; sulphuric acid, twenty 

drops. Mix in a vial. Dose: A teaspoonful every hour or every two 

hours during the well day till all is taken. A certain cure for the 

ague, or chills and fever. 

 

 

SICK HEADACHE PILLS. 

 

Take Socotrine aloes, gamboge, and castile soap, of each one dram; 

ipecac and scammony, of each thirty grains; oil of anise, thirty 

drops. Make into sixty pills with a little mucilage, gum arabic or 

extract dandelion. Dose: One to three pills. Useful in sick headache, 

habitual costiveness, dizziness, sour stomach, and indigestion, and 

may be used whenever a good vegetable cathartic is needed. For an 

attack of headache, take three pills, and repeat in three hours if the 

first does not operate. Will invariably give relief. 

 

 

ANODYNE HEADACHE PILLS. 

 

Take extract of hyoscyamus, thirty grains; extract stramonium, ten 

grains; quinine, twenty grains; morphine, two grains. Mix well and 

make into twenty pills, adding a little powdered liquorice root, or 

any other innocent powder, if necessary, to thicken the mass. The 

pills are one of the best remedies known for nervous headache, 

neuralgia in the face or head, toothache and nervous and neuralgic 

pains in any part of the system, that I have ever used. Dose: One 

pill, for a grown person, and may be repeated every two or three hours 

till relief is obtained. The extract of belladonna may be used instead 

of the stramonium, in the same proportion, with equally good effect. 

 

 

RHEUMATIC PILLS. 

 

Take jalap, colchicum seeds, and gum guaiac, of each one dram. 

Pulverize and mix veil, and make into sixty pills with extract of poke 

root (or berries). The dose is one or two pills three or four times a 

day. Good in all cases of chronic rheumatism, neuralgia, sciatica, and 

the like. 

 

 

ANOTHER FOR SAME. 

 

Take macrotin and pulverized gum guaiac, of each one dram; 

podophyllin, ten grains. Make into sixty pills with extract of poke 

root. Dose: One pill two or three times a day. An excellent pill for 

rheumatism and neuralgia. 

 

 

PILLS FOR DYSENTERY. 

 

Take rhubarb, ipecac, and castile soap, each thirty grains; pulverized 

opium, fifteen grains. Make into thirty pills with mucilage, gum 

arabic, or any other suitable substance. Dose: One pill every three to 

six hours for diarrhoea and dysentery. After three or four are taken 

they should not be taken oftener than once in six hours.
