(Wild Cranesbill. N. O. Geraniacee. Tincture and triturations of root. Infusion of the plant.)
Clinical.─Diarrhœa. Diplopia. Dysentery. Hemorrhages. Leucorrhœa. Stool, ineffectual urging to. Throat, sore.
Characteristics.─There are two fragmentary provings of Geran. mac. one made with root preparations, one with infusion of the plant. The chief symptoms observed have been diplopia and other disorders of vision (these were observed by the prover of the decoction; the remaining symptoms resulted from the root preparation); and constant and ineffectual desire for stool. In the mother tinctures and lower attenuations it has been used successfully in cases of hemorrhage from various parts─nose, stomach, lungs. Under the use of the drug the blood in hemorrhages becomes darker, clots more easily, and is much less in quantity. The root contains both tannic and gallic acids. It has also been used for chronic diarrhœa and for leucorrhœa.
Relations.─Compare: Hamam., Hydrast., Hematoxylon, Ratan., Ficus relig., Erodium.

Mouth.─Dryness of mouth, extending outward on the lips to the cuticle proper, followed by pain in l. side of forehead, and of head directly over l. ear.─Tip of tongue dry and burning.
Stool and Anus.─Constant desire to go to stool with inability to pass the least fecal matter; after the effects passed off the bowels moved without pain.
