ARSENICUM IODATUM – Homeopathic Medicine

ARSENICUM IODATUM homeopathic drug picture symptoms from A Primer of Materia Medica by T.F. Allen, of the homeopathy remedy ARSENICUM IODATUM…


      Clinical. Dryness. Valuable for violent, acute coryza, with profuse, acrid discharge which is watery; associated with soreness in the nostrils, heat and burning, extending into the eyes, headache and all the symptoms of violent, acute influenza. (A combination and aggravation of the symptoms of iodine and arsenic.).


      Clinical. Pulmonary tuberculosis, with cavities in lungs, hectic fever, etc. Chronic catarrhal pneumonia, with muco-purulent expectoration, dyspnoea, night sweat, etc. Chronic pneumonia, with abscess in the lung, hectic fever. Acute catarrhal pneumonia, with caseous degeneration and fibrosis. Fibroid degeneration of the lung, with inflammation and haemorrhage; commencing cavity. In general, many cases of pulmonary disease, pneumonia, subacute and chronic, and various forms of phthisis pulmonaris have been cured, the special indication being great debility, night sweats, either after the cavity is formed or when a cavity threatens to form, with a decidedly cachectic condition of the patient. It seems probable that in the Iodide of Arsenic we have found a remedy most closely allied to manifestations of tuberculosis. It will be indicated by a profound prostration, rapid, irritable pulse, recurring fever and sweats, emaciation, tendency to diarrhoea, etc. It is especially valuable in non- tubercular phthisis.
