Dr. T. C. Fanning recommended this remedy as the best one we possess to prevent a threatening attack of hay fever from maturing, or to relax the same when it has already set in. If the weather has been sultry, and the patient stuffy during the day, oppressed with short, anxious breathing, the spasm during the night will come unless this remedy be given every hour during the day and through the evening in hot water.
