With apparent great sagacity one of our best authors says : “Bromine could not be a remedy in diphtheria and also in croup, as diphtheritis and croup are two diseases entirely different in their nature and character ; a chief croup remedy cannot at the same time be a great diphtheritis remedy, because a drug has not only to cover the symptoms, but must likewise correspond to the character of the disease.” He quotes Belladonna : “Do we give Bellad. for headache in the full-blooded and robust and also in the bloodless and feeble?” We answer, yes, we do frequently. Every fully proved drug has produced such “opposite” states and also cured them, if only the other symptoms, particularly the characteristics, correspond to the case. We have nothing to do with the disease, only with the sick and the characteristics of each case. –C. Hg.]
