Symptoms of the homeopathic medicine ASTERIAS RUBENS from A Text Book of Materia Medica and Therapeutics by A.C. Cowperthwaite. Find all the symptoms of ASTERIAS RUBENS

      Common name. Star Fish. Preparation. Tincture from the live animal. General Analysis and Therapeutics Acts upon the cerebro-spinal system, “giving readily and often in profusion symptoms indicating disturbance of function, but it never goes on to alteration of tissue, rarely even to the earliest indications thereof” (Petroz.). Hysterical and neuralgic symptoms predominate, and it is in the treatment of these conditions, and in chorea and epilepsy that it has been chiefly used. It has also been used in cerebral congestion, when apparently a precursor of apoplexia. The symptoms given are not markedly characteristic. It is said that the drug has a tendency to produce irritation of venous parts, but never reaching true inflammation.
