NERVOUS SYMPTOMS. 703 
Those afthmatic patients, whofe ftomach and bowels are weak, 
and muck troubled with flatulence, do better with the lighter flefh- 
meats and a little wine, than with a milk and vegetable diet ; and 
the folution of gum ammoniac, with acetum fcilliticumy or the pilule 
fcillitictfy do not commonly agree fo well with them as the afa fœti~ 
da and volatile alkaline faits.. 
When elderly perfons have been feized with an afthmatic pa*~ 
roxyfm from the gout attacking the lungs, I have found moft be¬ 
nefit from blifters- applied between the fhoulders, and to the legs* 
and from bolufes of gum ammoniac yfaL, voL. amnion, and camphire*. 
given twice or thrice af-day.. 
(3.) To prevent the return of the fits in the true fpafinodia 
afthma, we mult endeavour to ftrengthen the lungs and whole ner¬ 
vous fyftem by means of the bark, chalybeates, elixir of vitriol, a 
proper diet, country-air,, and riding;, 
A flannel, waiflcoat next the fkin, ©r a large piece of flannel; 
wore on the bread, has contributed to prevent the frequent return 
of afthmatic fits. 
The patients lhonld, above all things, avoid eating or drinking; 
fb much at once, as to burden their ftomach. 
In the mixt aflhma the bark mult be ufed with more caution* 
efpecially if the lungs be confiderably obftru<5led, or loaded with 
phlegm ; and the cure muft be chiefly attempted by iflues in the 
back and arms, or a feton in the fide ; and by other medicines that 
tend to remove the obftrucftion in the pulmonary veflels, or leffen 
the flux of humours to them ; of this kind are the piluhe fcilliticæy 
taken in fuch quantity as to keep the body always open spills of gar¬ 
lic and foap ; the juice of forty or fifty millepede in two or three 
table-fpoonfuls of French white wine* Rhenifh or cyder, taken twice 
a-day ; and crude mercury, or quickfilver pills, which have fome- 
times cured afthmatic ailments after other remedies had failed. 
As not only different patients are relieved by different remedies, 
but the fame patients, from a change in their conftitution, or in the 
nature of the diforder, often require a confiderable change in their 
medicines
