I studied homeopathic medicine in India.
could you please let me know what
mania-a-potu means in Kents repertory?

Hi Govind,

Mania-a-potu relates to alcoholism. It literally means Insanity arising from the use of spirituous liquors. Similar rubrics would be Alcoholism, Delirium tremens and Dipsomania.

Best wishes,
