Agaricus Muscarius. (Amanita.)

Fly Fungus. Nat. order, Fungi.

One of the most poisonous fungi known as Agaricus muscarius, abused by Asiatic tribes of savages in the form of a real intoxicating drink, the effects of which have been reported by numerous travelers.

The usual name of “Agaricus” given by Linnee is too vague.

Persoon and Fries have split this Linnean genus into seven families, and the numerous species received forty-four different generic names, of which Amanita is one. Before long we may have a few relations introduced on account of their essential difference in effect.

First proved by Schreter and E. Stapf, and published by the latter in 1828. Hahnemann and his students' proving was published in the Archives, 1830, with some toxic symptoms.

In 1831 the best proving of all, that of Apelt, was published in connection with many reliable provings on the sick, and some valuable cured symptoms.

In the same year Hartlaub published in the third volume of his Materia Medica two provings by very trustworthy men, Drs. Woost and Seidel, with some of the observations by travelers in Asia.

In 1835 Hahnemann incorporated it in the second edition of his Chronic Diseases as one of the antipsorics, adopting only 715 symptoms.

In 1859 in Clotar Müller's Quarterly, vol. x, p. 217 to 260, a so-called critical review was made; it is enough to say that nearly every symptom there condemned to be stricken out has been confirmed by the Vienna provings published since; in the list of toxic symptoms, given with great pretension, one of the main sources was overlooked, the report of Langsdorf (therefore not in Allen), and 15 symptoms of it belong to an entirely different Agaricus.

In 1869 Zlatarowich published the provings of the Vienna Society, undertaken with great zeal and courage. We may say Amanita has suffered an overproving similar to what our Thuya and Lycopodium had to undergo.

An addition has been made of Th. Rückert's essay, comparing the symptoms of this remedy with the symptoms of incipient tuberculosis; they are marked.

The carefully dried cap (pileus) is triturated in the regular way.

Amanita is one of the few remedies in which the symptoms appear at the same time on opposite sides, but diagonally. If, after giving a medicine, the symptoms do not disappear in a reverse direction to their origin, we may know it is not the right remedy].

Atropine is said to be antagonistic to Muscarine, but they both, when topically used, dilate the pupil.
Muscarine is very similar to Pilocarpine, (jaborandi) since both cause arrest of heart's action; profuse sweat; salivation, lachrymation; contracted pupils, etc. Muscarine acts more on lachrymal glands, less on sweat and salivary glands; Pilocarpine causes more urging to urinate.
Muscarine, given internally, contracts pupil more than Pilocarpine; used topically, only the former dilates the pupil. Gelsem. is here similar to Muscarine.
