Gelsemium sempervirens [Gels]

      This is the remedy for preliminary stages of cerebro-spinal meningitis, the dull, dazed, drowsy stage. One part of the tincture to 10 of water, teaspoonful of the solution every two hours, or the 3d potency.

Echinacea angustifolia [Echi]

      Dr. Webster claims that Echinacea is the best remedy for the developed meningitis, cerebro and spinal. Dose, from 1 to 5 drops of the tincture, owing to age of patient. Give it every hour at first. If vomiting is present give Ipecac 3; if opisthotonos, give Cicuta vir.3. Out of mind, wild eyed, Belladonna 3.
