A powerful diaphoretic and sialagogue, having also the power of increasing the bronchial, lachrymal and nasal secretions. It has been used with advantage in diabetes insipidus, uraemia, and renal dropsies, night-sweats of phthisis, as a galactagogue, etc. It is apt to produce nausea on an empty stomach. Decreases the temperature. Resembles atropine in its action of the pulse, flushing the face, and exerting a more decided influence on adults than children; but is diametrically opposed to it in its action of the salivary, sudoral and mammary secretions, on the pupil, on the minute arteries, and in delirium. The sweating may be prevented or checked by the subcutaneous injection of 1-100 of a grain of atropine. --from Parke, Davis & Co. Organic Materia Medica.
