Arsenicum Iodatum – Arsenictriiodide

The attenuations are prepared from Arsenictriiodide, AsI3 , MW: 455.6.

Asthma. Pulmonary tuberculosis. Dry irritating cough without expectoration. Ag- gravation after midnight. Encourages the appetite.

Arsenicum Iodatum is also indicated in eczematous eruptions, also in psoriasis and formation of skin cancer, and it can also be effective in tumours of the mamma- ry glands (cf. Mastopathia cystica Nosode). On the basis of the provings (by Dr. Hale) scrofulous eye-inflammations should respond favourably, likewise stiffness and painfulness in the left side of the neck, aggravated by movement.

Symptoms which may lead to the selection of Arsenicum Iodatum are: burning heat in the sacrum, as if the clothes were on fire. Itching on the backs of both hands, especially the left. Shivering of the left thigh, formication in the left thigh, later also in the right, extending to the foot, ameliorated by walking. Heaviness of the legs with general tiredness.

The mucus which is very tenacious in asthma may be tough, stringy and some- times glassy, or may also form a whitish mass. In purulent bronchitis and pulmonary abscess (for which it is the main remedy), the mucus may be yellowish-green, al- most like pus, and may have blood mixed with it.

The German Monograph-Preparation Commission for the Homoeopathic Field of Therapy has, under the Preparation Monograph for Arsenicum jodatum, published the following indication(s) in the German Bundesanzeiger (German Federal Gazette) for arsenicum iodatum: common cold; bronchitis; glandular swelling; geriatric heart.
