It was injected before beginning the operation every two hours 2.5 mg femara overnight delivery, and for two or three days afterward buy femara 2.5mg free shipping. In all cases there was no collapse from the anesthesia lies and but little reduction of the force and strength of the heart and no respiratory failure. Hare advises one-twentieth of a grain of the sulphate of strychnia at the time of the operation, just preceding and subsequently every half hour, treating the conditions induces by the agent symptomatically. We believe it to better to begin earlier, in order to have the system previously braced and not be obliged to administer the agent to toxicity just at the time. It is a direct antidote to chloral and is used to great advantage in the earlier stages of opium poisoning, poisoning or asphyxia from gas Ellingwood’s American Materia Medica, Therapeutics and Pharmacognosy - Page 426 inhalation and chloroform narcosis, and as a restorative to those apparently drowned. Antidotes—In the treatment of strychnine poisoning, the stomach should be immediately irrigated. A strong infusion of white oak bark or tannic acid in water should be given, or the substances can be used in the irrigating fluid. After the stomach is thoroughly evacuated, chloral in doses of from fifteen to thirty grains, with as much sodium bromide, may be given, or passiflora in from two to four dram doses, or large doses of the fluidextract of gelsemium. We have assurance now that full hypodermic doses, thirty to sixty minims of subculoid lobelia, repeated as needed, will prove to be a most dependable antidote for the action of this agent. If the patient cannot swallow, the passiflora or chloral in solution may be injected into the rectum, or veratrum may be injected hypodermically in doses of from ten to fifteen minims. If they decrease in severity, are of shorter duration and occur after increasing intervals, the prognosis is hopeful. Therapy—The phosphate of strychnine given in doses of from 1/ to the 180 1/ of a grain combines the stimulating properties of the strychnine with 80 the nerve building properties of the phosphorus. It is a combination that should be of much value in conditions where it is desired to retain the high point gained by a nerve stimulant, and make the condition thus gained permanent. The use of phosphorus and the phosphates during pregnancy, where anemia is present or where the nervous system is seriously drawn upon by the nutrition of the fetus, has been observed by many. The use of the phosphate of strychnine in doses of one one- hundredth of a grain is commented upon by Dorset. It improves the appetite and digestion, overcomes despondency, relieves constipation and materially builds the Ellingwood’s American Materia Medica, Therapeutics and Pharmacognosy - Page 427 patient up, placing her in an excellent condition to pass through the labor with full strength. The uterus contracts promptly after the second and third stages, and the use of ergot is entirely dispensed with. The often observed chilliness or rigors which, in the majority of cases immediately follow labor, have been noticed in but few cases. These rigors, little account of which can be found in textbooks, are nothing more or less than surgical shock. He believes that as phosphorus and strychnine are remedies used in the treatment of rachitis with good results they are indicated during the gestation of the rachitic fetus. A wide field of action is open to this compound, as prostration from real deficiency of the nerve elements, prominent among which is phosphorus, is a common condition among very many, especially among brain workers. The strychnia lifts the forces up to the normal point, and the phosphorus permanently holds them there by its restorative influence. Administration— The dose is from the 1/ to 1/ of a grain, usually 200 50 administered in pill form. In granules of 1/ of a grain the agent is 120 convenient of administration and prompt in its action. Specific Symptomatology—Hale says arsenic acts upon the glandular system, and fluids of the body, while strychnine acts upon the nervous system. He advises it where the nutritive and glandular systems are involved to any great extent, with implication of the nervous system at the same time. This is found in paresis or mild forms of paralysis with edemic tissues, sodden, relaxed muscular structures, with anemia and tendency to dropsical conditions; great nervous weakness or prostration, with marked blood dyscrasia, chronic glandular induration, chronic ulceration, and the conditions of the mucous surfaces of the intestinal canal following typhus or typhoid fever and dysentery. It is specifically indicated in the debility or nerve failure of the aged, and in the prostrating influence of severe disease in children. During severe fevers it will not antagonize the sedative influence of the antipyretics, but will brace the nervous system against the prostration that will follow when the fever is gone. In spasmodic affections it Ellingwood’s American Materia Medica, Therapeutics and Pharmacognosy - Page 428 is valuable. The author has given it persistently with sedative remedies in severe chronic cases of asthmatic bronchitis, especially in the aged, and cured them both permanently.

Congenital heart defects appeared to be the second most common malformation encountered generic femara 2.5mg visa, with rates reported to be one in 200 (0 femara 2.5mg overnight delivery. Several other craniofacial and limb defects may also occur and as the list becomes more exhaustive, almost all types of congenital anomalies have been reported in association with epilepsy (Janz, 1982) or its treatment. One case of fetal myeloschisis was reported in the offspring of a woman who took 4. It is not usually possi- ble for women with epilepsy to discontinue medication preconceptually or during preg- nancy. A twofold increase in congenital anomalies was reported in infants exposed to anticonvulsant drugs in utero, but there was no drug specificity to the malformations (Speidel and Meadow, 1972). A constellation of anomalies were observed among infants exposed in utero to phenytoin; this is referred to as ‘the fetal hydantoin syndrome’ Anticonvulsant agents 171 (Hanson and Smith, 1975). In the ensuing 30 years, various syndromes were reported in association with (1) phenytoin (Hanson and Smith, 1975), (2) phenobarbitone (Seip, 1976), (3) carbamazepine (Jones et al. Some have advocated ‘lumping’ these into a spectrum of major and minor anom- alies to be referred to as ‘the fetal anticonvulsant drug syndrome’ (Zackai et al. Phenytoin Phenytoin or hydantoin (Dilantin, Diphenylan, Mesantoin, Peganone) is an anticonvul- sant, chemically related to the barbiturates, and has been available for over 50 years. Other than epilepsy, it is used to treat arrhythmias, trigeminal neuralgia, and myotonic muscular dystrophy. The ‘fetal hydantoin syndrome’ was first described in 1975 (Hanson and Smith, 1975), but the association of birth defects with phenytoin was sus- pected before the syndrome was described. The fetal hydantoin syndrome is character- ized by a pattern of multiple minor and major craniofacial and limb anomalies (Box 9. Hemorrhagic complications in the neonate have also been reported in the offspring of mothers receiv- ing phenytoin (Gimovsky and Petrie, 1986; Solomon et al. Cleft palate, cardiac anomalies, and skeletal defects were increased in the offspring of experimental animals which received phenytoin (Finnell, 1981; Finnell and Chernof, 1984; McClain and Langhoff, 1980). Carbamazepine Carbamazepine (Tegretol) is another widely prescribed anticonvulsant that is also used as an analgesic for trigeminal neuralgia. This agent was thought to be ideal for use during pregnancy, and in one review of 94 exposed infants, the rate of congenital anomalies was not increased over the expected rate (Niebyl et al. The reason for similarities in malformations is probably 172 Anticonvulsant drugs during pregnancy Box 9. However, as with phenytoin, it is uncertain as to whether these anomalies are caused by the disease process itself, the medication, a metabolite, an enzyme deficiency, or a combination thereof (Scialli and Lione, 1989). In 1991, it was reported that neural tube defects may occur in up to 1 percent of offspring of pregnant mothers taking carbamazepine, similar to valproic acid (Rosa, 1991). A case report of a large lumbar meningomyelocele in a patient given megadose carbamazepine dur- ing the period of neural tube closure has been published (Little et al. In a small case series of carbamazepine-exposed infants (n = 23), one infant had an identical neural tube defect (myeloschisis) and multiple other congenital anomalies (Gladstone et al. An excess risk of spina bifida was demonstrated among 3625 infants from Sweden whose mothers had used carbamazepine during pregnancy (Kallen, 1994). Anomalies have been reported in the offspring of pregnant animals receiving carba- mazepine, including central nervous system anomalies (Finnell et al. Paramethadione and trimethadione The dione anticonvulsants, paramethadione (Paradione) and trimethadione (Tridione) were used primarily for the treatment of petit mal seizures. The association between trimetha- dione and malformed newborns was published in 1970 (German et al. Following this 1970 report, numerous reports of fetal malformations associated with maternal dione use were published. A review of 65 in utero exposures to either trimethadione or para- methadione was summarized in the statement: ‘a normal child resulting from such a preg- Box 9. No controlled studies have been published of birth defects following exposure during embryogenesis with either of these agents. Note that this syndrome differs from the hydantoin and carbamazepine syndromes only in the absence of distal digital hypoplasia (Kelly, 1984). Valproic acid Valproic acid (Depakane, Myproic Acid, Depakote) is used to treat petit mal seizures. Use of valproic acid and an increased risk of neural tube defects and microcephaly was reported in 1980 (Dalens et al. Valproic acid during the first trimester increases the risk for neu- ral tube defects to approximately 2 percent, compared to about 0.
