Pharmacological and clinical notes

Cantharis (cantharides)

Irritative conditions in the urogenital organs, vesical tenesmus, strangury and burning in the urethra after miction.

Arsenicum album (white arsenic)

Degenerative impairment of the renal parenchyma, glomerulonephritis, burning and pain in the region of the kidneys and bladder.

Mercurius solubilis Hahnemanni (mixture containing essentially mercuroamidonitrate) Antisuppurative, active in cases of pyuria and inflammation in the urogenital tract.

Hepar sulfuris (calcium sulphide)

Cystopyelitis, suppurative pyelitis and pyuria, urinary disorders.

Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Cantharis compositum S, therapeutical possibilities result for the treatment of acute and chronic pyelitis and cystitis, as well as its application as auxiliary remedy in other renal disorders; also for acute renal inflammation as well as for hydronephrosis, possibly alternating with Solidago compositum S, Berberis-Homaccord, as well as with Albumoheel S, Reneel, Traumeel S, Echinacea compositum (forte) S, etc.

In cases of cystitis with conditions of irritation caused by radiation therapy, Cantharis compositum S can also bring about an improvement of the vesical tenesmus, burning and stabbing pains during miction, etc. However, it is recommended, on the basis of recent experience, particularly when the pains radiate into the legs (particularly the right leg), that a mixed injection of Polypus vesicae urinariae-Injeel (forte) with Arsenicum album-Injeel forte S and Argentum nitricum-Injeel forte should be administered s.c., at first daily, later only 2-3 times weekly. The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the symptoms and the stage of the illness.
