Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Strophanthus compositum, therapeutic possibilities result for the treatment of coronary circulatory disturbances, as prophylaxis and therapy after myocardial infarction.

Strophanthus compositum is specifically focused on the symptomatology of the heart and coronary diseases, when not only the heart is taken into consideration but also important accompanying circumstances such as cold sweat (Veratrum), sickness (Aethusa cynapium, Tabacum), conditions of anxiety (Arsenicum album, Aconitum, Tabacum); further, the anginal disorders (Latrodectus mactans, Spigelia anthelmia, Cactus, Glonoinum); likewise, however, the clinically and experimentally detectable expansion of the coronary circulation, brought about by Glonoinum and the stopping of the tendency towards haemorrhages in the tissues (Tormentilla) are taken into consideration and the over-acidification of the tissue by Acidum sarcolacticum which usually precedes infarction, is reduced. In addition to Cactus compositum (i.v. and orally), alternating with Strophanthus compositum (in general i.m., s.c. or i.d.), the oral preparations Cralonin, Veratrum-Homaccord and possibly Vomitus-Heel as well as Cardiacum-Heel should find application, as these preparations should also be taken each once daily over a fairly long period by patients at risk from infarction, in addition

to weekly or twice-weekly injections of Cactus compositum, Cor compositum and Strophanthus compositum.

Good coupling possibilities also result from Carbo compositum (when there is danger of apoplexy). In increased blood pressure, although not in the acute condition, an intermediate injection of Rauwolfia compositum should be considered.

Regarding the precise additional prescription appropriate to the syndrome or  symptoms of the patient, the decision is made in every case in accordance with the overall picture (Cardiacum-Heel, Cralonin, Glonoin-Homaccord, etc.).

For the after-treatment of myocardial infarction, therefore, the choice must be made according to the symptomatology among Angio-Injeel, Cactus compositum, Carbo compositum and Strophanthus compositum.

In this case also the type of injection is of importance, whether it should be i.v., s.c. or

i.m. Angio-Injeel has the mildest action, but also Cactus compositum and Strophanthus compositum, injected i.v., can bring rapid and sustained help.

Alternatively, injections can be given, especially for collapse and where there is a risk of apoplexy, of Carbo compositum i.v., and Strophanthus compositum administered or also Cactus compositum some time later s.c. or i.m. or i.d. (in the front upper part of  the thorax as a wheal, which has also proved to be beneficial with Angio-Injeel), in addition, orally, Cralonin and Cactus compositum S in frequent alternating doses (5-8 drops).

Also Cardiacum-Heel has a pain-relieving action, doubtless since, by means of Cardiacum-Heel the circulatory conditions in the coronary region are improved.

For disorders in the arm, Kalmia compositum is indicated.

Aurumheel N drops counteract the often pronounced myocardial weakness, preferably administered continuously in alternation with Cralonin.

The dosage is adjusted in accordance with the disease, the clinical picture and the stage of the illness: 1 ampoule 3 times weekly to daily i.m., s.c., i.d., i.v. For the after- treatment of myocardial infarction, alternating with Cactus compositum, Cor compositum, Carbo compositum, etc.
