Antimonium Tartaricum

Keynote symptoms of homeopathy medicine Antimonium Tartaricum, described by A. L. Monroe in his book, Method of Memorizing the Materia Medica, published in 1882….

Torpor, weak pulse, and trembling within,

Apathy, hot head, and cool, sweaty skin,

Respiratory tracts Catarrhs rudely smite,

Tongue red in streaks on a base of pale white,

Auscultating the chest, with but half an ear

Rattling is heard over whole lung area;

Expectoration is absent, however,

Mucus remaining despite all endeavour,

Enervation grows greater, the cough disappears,

The face gets quite blue, which increases our fears;

In children a touch, or a look, will enrage,

Carried they must be, despite size or age.
