Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1859 Excerpt: ... he felt as if his bowels were on fire. Under treatment this man recovered. (Med. Times and Gaz. Dec. 10, 1853.) Shepherds who have used this solution for dipping sheep, have occasionally suffered severely from symptoms of irritant poisoning as well as from eruptions on the skin. Orfila refers to a singular case of poisoning by a compound arsenite of potash and lime in a solid form (i. e. as a soap) in which the most marked nervous symptoms (trismus) appeared in three.quarters of an hour: the individual recovered. (Toxicologic, i. 449.) Fatal Dose.--Tho medicinal dose of Fowler's Solution is from four to ten minims twice a day. It is common to commence with four to five minims, and gradually increase the dose. Dr. Fereira has known fifteen minims to have been taken three times a day for a week without ill effects; and Dr. Mitehell, of Ohio, has given from fifteen to twenty drops three times a day in intermittents. (Materia Medica, i. 718.) In some persons there is a strong idiosyncrasy with respect to arsenic (see ante, p. 376); and even smaller doses than those commonly prescribed can hardly be borne without causing alarming symptoms. A case was reported, in the Pharmaceutical Journal for 1845, in which one drachm (equal to half a grain of arsenic) was taken with comparative impunity. According to Mr. Bullock, the Pharmacopoeial preparation is not a true arsenite of potash, but a solution of arsenious acid in carbonate of potash, with a minute trace of the arsenite. (Lancet, Dec. 21, p. 674.) The uncertainty of its composition may possibly account for the variable effects produced by this liquid. Mr. Hunt, who has largely employed arsenic in the. treatment of skin diseases, states that when the susceptibility is not great, a dose of (wo drachms of the solu...Read Less
