(Prickly Ash).


We have a good proving of this drug in Hale’s New Remedies, by Dr. Cullis. Among the provers were three women. In one of them the drug caused the appearance of the menses a week before their time; and, in another, “the menses came on profusely, with dreadful distress and pain, baffling description.” According to Dr. Hale, this drug is especially suitable to women of pure habit, nervous temperament, and delicate organization. It has been used with success in dysmenorrhoea and after-pains.
