HAHNEMANNS counsel regarding the repetition of the dose should be closely adhered to in treating children and those who are readily affected by remedies, more particularly in paroxysmal affections. It should be our incurable rule never to repeat the first dose so long as the amelioration obtains. In intermittent affections only give the dose between the paroxysms; never during the attack-preferably immediately after. The same applies to diarrhoea.
If after the first dose-which should be given immediately after an evacuation-there be an improvement, give no more medicine so long as the improvement continues. Convulsions, spasmodic affections, and all maladies of a remittent character come under this rule. Cleave to this. Watch the results. The, if you have not been practicing with this constantly before you, compare your success with your previous practice. G.H. CLARKE, M.D., U.S.A.
