Antispasmodics are substances that relax spastic stric-tures, which some perform by immediate contact, as asses milk, cream, oil of sweet almonds, emulsions, and the fat of animals. Some, by a sulphureous vapour, appease the unbridled motions of the nervous fluid; such as sage, betony, marjoram, the roots of valerian, etc. as also musk, castor, and the like, which are of great use in convulsive disor-ders, and the falling sickness.
