Espanet refers Belladonna to the inflammatory constipation.
 Teste writes that it is serviceable in hernia and lead colic, affections in which constipation is one of the chief symptoms.
 Although these forms of constipation do not come properly within the plan which we have laid out, yet we will give a few extracts, from a monograph by Dr. Davasse, bearing on our subject : Delayed alvine evacuations (Purkinge). Frequent desire for stool without result (Hermann). Constipation (several). Absence of stools and urine (Kock).
 Teste writes : In nervous children with large heads, dilated pupils, subject to convulsive movements, startings in sleep and disturbing dreams, Belladonna12 is the only medicine with which I have been able to overcome the accompanying constipation. I generally give it in globules upon the tongue, once or twice a day, ordinarily for several days in succession.
 Jahr describes the symptom, suppressed stool and constipation, sometimes with bloating of the bowels, heat of the head and profuse sweat.
 Noack recommends Belladonna for chronic haemorrhoidal constipation when there are at the same time violent pains in the kidneys and a sensation of constriction in the breast.
 Bruckner and Schadler note the following concomitant phenomena : congestion to the head, face and eyes red, heat in the head, pulsation of the arteries of the neck, sensitiveness to light and noise. Dr. Guernsey claims to have cured with Belladonna high, a constipation which resisted the most violent purgatives.
 Tuthill Massey differs from Dr. Guernsey, at least in regard to the suitable dose of the medicine : “The extract of Belladonna, in the dose of a quarter of a grain in the evening on lying down, merits, in some case, the highest consideration.”
 We give her a note from two celebrated physicians of the old-school. MM. Trousseau and Pidoux recall the fact that Bretonneau recommends Belladonna in gastralgia and enteralgia with constipation. Bretonneau also prescribes Belladonna in the constipation of hypochondriacs and nervous women. “It is remarkable”, add our authors, “that certain persons who resist the most powerful purgatives, are enabled to go to stool each day by the most minute dose of Belladonna.
 One, two or four pills containing each a centigramme of the extract and as much of the powder are ordinarily sufficient.”
