Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1898 edition. Excerpt: ...dose. The reason for this is the fact that as peptones are formed in the stomach, they are absorbed or passed through the pylorus into the intestine, and carry with them a certain proportion of the ferment which produces this change, and that in a case where the gastric juice is of notably poor quality, and artificial pepsin is employed, the digestive action, which at first may be quite eflicient, grows weaker and weaker, and fresh supplies of pepsin are required from time to time to maintain the process. "---1Vew Remedies. PEPSIN AND BISMUTH TABLETS. (FAIRCHILD.) Each tablet contains one grain of pure Pepsin (Fairchild) and two grains of Bismuth Subnitrate. Pepsin and Bismuth constitute one of the most eflicient and generally used combinations in the treatment of dyspepsia. In these tablets these remedies are presented in an exact, agreeable and eflicient form. The well-known chemical incompatibilities between Pepsin and Bismuth, in solution, and the criticisms justly urged against such a combination, have led some to the impression that this objection is true of Pepsin and Bismuth mixtures generally. There is no question of incompatibility between Pepsin and Bismuth, except as relates to the Ammonia Citrate in solutions, a salt of Bismuth, moreover, which is greatly inferior to the Subnitrate. The Bismuth Subnitrate is well known to be very beneficial in certain forms of dyspepsia, and its properties are in no way inimical to the action of the gastric juice or to that of artificial peptic agents administered in conjunction with it. USUAL D0sE.--One or two tablets immediately before or after each meal, or at any time when sufering from indigestion. PEPSIN, BISMUTH AND PANCREATIC TABLETS. (FAIRCHILD.)
