This commonly comes periodically, usually, one-
sided. It may occur at the same hour for several days in succession. The

pains are of all kinds. It may start in the morning or at any time. It

involves more especially the eyes, side of the head, face, and goes into

the teeth and neck. It comes in persons subject to neuritis in other parts

or neuralgia.

Treatment. Build up the system with tonics in the interval. Lead a quiet

restful life. Acetanilid in five-grain doses frequently relieves it. This

is a dangerous medicine to use, except under a doctor's supervision.

Spigelia in doses of one-twelfth of a drop of the tincture is good for

left-sided attacks; two doses are enough, one-half hour apart.
