This work was undertaken with a desire to place before the
medical profession in condensed form a resume of the Materia
Medica of all remedies in common use to date, their pharmacy
and therapeutics, together with a chapter on prescription writ-
ing, and the management of cases of poisoning.
Many physicians have not obtained the desired results from
their remedies, because the right preparation has not been ad-
ministered. This is especially true of remedies given in the
lower potencies in dilution form. Where the remedies are not
soluble, the trituration form should be employed. Where it is
desirable that a particular strength or potency be used, this
has been indicated.
