Polymnia Uvedalia, Bearsfoot. Employed in conditions of vascular atony with functionally enlarged and painful glands, as in enlarged spleen, hypertrophy of the liver, and uterine subinvolution. (Ec. tr., 3 to I0 I.) Externally, it is employed in spinal irritation (ext. 25% in ointment), and as a hair tonic (ec. tr., 25% combined with other agents). This drug is in use principally by the older eclectics, who consider it of positive value in glandular troubles, although in general a weak agent.
