Quote Paraph: "Cannabis indica, which was first recommended in epilepsy by Dr. Reynolds,1 is sometimes, though not very frequently, useful. It is of small value as an adjunct to bromide, but is sometimes of considerable service given separately. It may be noted that the action of Indian hemp presents many points of resemblance to that of belladonna; it is capable of causing also delirium and sleep, first depression and then acceleration of the heart, and also dilates the pupil. The cerebral excitement is relatively more marked, and the effect on the heart and pupil much less than in the case of belladonna. [PARAGRAPH BREAK] In the following case its effect was far more decided than that of bromide:—"[...] "1 Loc. cit., p. 321. It has been lately recommended also by Sinkler (Philadelphia Med. Times, Sept., 1878)."
