Quote Paraph: "On bromide of ammonium (•) i. three times a day) [IN THE ORIGINAL TEXT, THE "•)" WAS REPRESENTED AS ONE SYMBOL, A SEMICIRCLE OPENED TO THE LEFT WHICH INSCRIBED A DOT.], the fits ceased for several months, and the lad discontinued attendance, but returned in consequence of a recurrence. On the same treatment, and on bromide and belladonna, the attacks continued very frequent, and although they were lessened by bromide and digitalis, they did not cease until oxide of zinc was substituted for the digitalis, the dose of bromide remaining the same. The attacks then at once ceased, and when he had had no attack for eleven months, quinine was substituted for the bromide and zinc. He has now taken this for three months without any relapse."
