Dr. S.R. Phatak describes the clinically confirmed symptoms of the homeopathic remedy Eupion in his Concise Materia Medica, published in 1977.


      It is a lighter volatile oil obtained from distillation of wood tar. It has marked female symptoms, with backache. Menses; too early and copious; irritable and disinclined to talk during the menses. Yellow leucorrhoea, staining the linen yellow, with severe backache, after menses; when pain in the back ceases, leucorrhoea gushes out. Burning in right ovary. Sacrum pains as if broken; backache extends to pelvis better leaning against anything for support or bending backwards. Cramps in calves at night. A sense in the feet as if walking on needles. Uterine displacements. Sensation as if whole body were made of jelly. Profuse sweat from slight exertion.
