COUGH CASES [Cough Cases]
Dr. J.A. Biegler reports in the Trans. I.H.A., 1888, a case of subacute laryngitis cured by Kali phos. The prescription was given “as a forlorn hope,” because the case came late under treatment, with weakness, pale, bluish face, etc. Speech slow, becoming inarticulate, creeping paralysis, and because Grauvogl says: “We know that the oxidation processes, the changes of gases in the respiration, and other chemical transformations in the blood, are brought about by the presence of Kali phos.”
Dr. F. W. Southworth reports two cases of spasmodic cough, promptly relieved by Magnes. phos. 4x and 6x respectively, the leading indications being its spasmodic character, worse on lying down and at night, and on breathing cold air; better on sitting up; tightness across the chest. The second case had spurting of urine when coughing.
Dr. Fisher was consulted by a lady (enciente) who was suffering from a cough which caused great inconvenience, as with every cough there was emission of urine. Ferrum phos. cured her very speedily. A short time ago the lady, under similar circumstances, was again troubled with a cough. Ferrum phos. this time also cured her as speedily. (From Schussler).
