Historical Use of Cocculus indicus in Western Medicine

Quote Paraph: "Among other drugs which I have tried without seeing benefit, other than slight and rare, from their use, are aconite, hydrocyanic acid, bromide of camphor, nitrite of soda, nitrite of amyl (by the mouth), chloral hydrate, paraldehyde, benzoate of soda, Piscidia erythrina, Calabar bean, ergot, sclerotic acid, codeia, and cocculus indicus. It is singular that the last, injected beneath the skin, will infallibly produce a fit in an epileptic patient."
