Dr. V. Pou-let, of Plancher-les-Mines, calls attention in the Gazette de Gynécologie, of February 13, 1888, to the use of strophanthus in metrorrhagia of the menopause and that of very fleshy women during the age of fecundity. As is well-known, ergot is very useful in the first class of cases, but has little or no effect in the second. But Poulet has used strophanthus in both classes of cases for almost three years. But he has used the drug in substance, 5 centig. of the recently powdered seed with a sufficient quantity of honey to make one pill. Two pills are taken the first day, three the second, and four a day after that, if necessary. Poulet claims, also, that he has had exceptionally good results from the use of strophanthus in typhoid fever, and will soon publish his cases.
