KENT: “Among the striking features of Opium is a class of complaints marked by painlessness, inactivity and torpor.”

”Most of the complaints are attended with stupor; lies in a stupor like apoplexy, cannot be aroused.”
”The Op., patient is full of convulsions. The patient wants to be uncovered, wants the cool air the open air. Opisthotonos; head drawn back; cerebrospinal meningitis. In a case of cerebrospinal meningitis we find convulsions approaching, opisthotonos, head drawn back, kicks the covers off, wants a cool room; skin red; face red and mottled; pupils contracted. Now if the mother puts that child into a hot bath, to relieve the convulsions, it will become unconscious and cold as death. If you are called to see such a case, be sure to give Op., and in twelve hours you will be astonished to see the state of quietude. It competes here with Apis.”
