Erigeron, Fleabane. This is a very valuable agent in passive hemorrhages without fever. It is especially applicable in uterine hemorrhage, and has, in lesser degree than ergot, an action upon unstriped muscular tissues. As a local application, it acts somewhat like turpentine, but is less irritating. Its application is in uterine, vesical, and intestinal hemorrhage, chronic diarrhea, gonorrhea, leucorrhea, bronchitis, phthisis, tympanites, and irritation from vesical calculi. Dose, oil of erigeron, 5 to 10 I upon sugar; ec. tr., 5 to 30 I.
