In rheumatic cases, salicin, aspirin, and salicylate of soda are indicated.
salicin is, if ever, but very seldom used for adulteration of quinine.
The abortive method consists in cutting short the attack by the administration of colchicum, veratria, or the salicin compounds.
It can be hydrolyzed, by a special enzyme, into salicin and benzoic acid.
salicin, sodium salicylate, and salophen in moderately full doses act well in some cases.
salicin,62 ergot, guarana, have all been spoken of by enthusiasts as possessing valuable properties in diarrhoea.
From willow bark which is fresh, and rich in salicin, it may be obtained by the cautious evaporation of the cold aqueous infusion.
salicin has lately been used with considerable advantage in acute rheumatism.
If these means are ineffectual, a full dose of camphor (2 drams) or of salicin may at times assist.
Pain is best relieved by hot fomentations, cocain, and in many cases the internal use of salicin or phenacetin.
