Notes:- Dr. Bhanja says that ,"In my experience I find that Graph. is a;pt to cause very great aggravation, even if correctly indicated.  I ascribe such aggravation to its administration in drop dose. One or two medicated globules (medicated simply by the touch of cord) in half or three-fourth ounce of distilled water, to which just a few drops of rectified spirit has been added and the whole content of the phial has been successed ten times is or are deemed quite sufficient and admirable for a dose."
