(Sulphite of Quinine)


A high-potency dose of Chinin-s. can sometimes reactivate suppressed malaria and trigger its symptoms. Besides its clear effect on malaria, it is homeopathically indicated for marked periodicity and spinal sensitivity, acute articular rheumatism, polyarticular gout, pruritus, and congested rectal conditions. It also addresses symptoms of chronic interstitial nephritis, retro-bulbar neuritis with sudden vision loss, thready vessels, and hiccups.

Head: Forehead and temple pain, gradually worsening at noon, often from malaria, with vertigo and pulsation, worse on the left side. Causes falls and inability to stand, along with amaurosis.

Ears: Intense ringing, buzzing, and roaring in the ears, leading to deafness (Meniere’s disease).

Face: Neuralgia starts under the eye and spreads around it, with pains recurring regularly and relieved by pressure.

Urinary: Bloody urine (hematuria), turbid with slimy, clay-colored, greasy sediment, low urea and phosphoric acid, high uric acid and chlorides, subnormal temperature, excessive flow, and albuminuria.

Circulatory System: Rapid decrease in red blood cells and hemoglobin, increased chloride elimination (hemoglobinuria), and tendency toward polynucleated leucocytosis.

Back: Sensitive dorsal vertebrae with pain on pressure, sensitivity in the last cervical vertebra, and pain extending to the head and neck.

Fever: Daily chills at 3 p.m., painful vein swelling during chills, shivering even in warmth, anguish, and subnormal temperature.

Skin: Itching, erythema, urticaria, jaundice, blisters, pustules, and purpura with great sensitivity and shriveled skin.

Relationship: Compare with Chininum salicylicum (for deafness, tinnitus, and Meniere’s disease), Ars., Eup-per., Methylene blue. Camphora mono-bromata is believed to enhance and prolong quinine’s action. Baja, an East Indian drug, is noted for intermittent fever (quartan type), pulsating headaches, injected eyes, flushed face, enlarged liver and spleen, and edema. Pambotano, a Mexican remedy, is also used for intermittent and tropical fevers. Antidotes include Parthenium, Nat-m., Lach., Arn., Puls.

Dose: First to third triturations; also thirtieth potency and higher.CHININUM SULPHURICUM

selection of the potency

  1. Individualization:

    • Homeopathy is based on the principle of treating the individual, not just the disease. The unique symptoms and characteristics of the person are crucial in determining the most suitable potency.
  2. Intensity of Symptoms:

    • The intensity of the symptoms guides the choice of potency. If the symptoms are intense and acute, a lower potency (e.g., 6C, 30C) might be considered. For chronic conditions with less intensity, higher potencies (e.g., 200C, 1M) may be appropriate.
  3. Sensitivity of the Patient:

    • Some individuals are more sensitive to homeopathic remedies, while others may require higher potencies. The practitioner considers the patient’s sensitivity when selecting the potency.
  4. Acute vs. Chronic Conditions:

    • Lower potencies are often used for acute conditions, while higher potencies may be considered for chronic or long-standing issues.
  5. Previous Response to Potencies:

    • The patient’s response to previous homeopathic treatments helps guide the choice of potency. If a particular potency has been effective in the past, it may be repeated or adjusted as needed.
  6. Vital Force and Susceptibility:

    • Homeopathy views illness as a disturbance in the vital force. The practitioner assesses the patient’s overall vitality and susceptibility to determine the appropriate potency.
  7. Aggravation or Amelioration:

    • The direction of the symptom response (aggravation or amelioration) after taking a remedy can influence the choice of potency.
  8. Miasmatic Considerations:

    • In classical homeopathy, the concept of miasms (inherited disease tendencies) is considered. The practitioner take this into account when selecting the potency.
  9. Practitioner Experience:

    • The experience and preference of the homeopathic practitioner play a role. Some practitioners may have success with certain potencies based on their clinical experience.


  • Do not exceed the recommended dose by physician
  • Keep out of the reach of children
  • Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight
  • Maintain half an hour gap between food/drink/any other medicines and homoeopathic medicine
  • Avoid any strong smell in the mouth while taking medicine e.g. camphor, garlic, onion, coffee, hing

Medicine images use for reference only selection of homeopathic medicine depends on the individual’s specific symptoms and overall constitution. Moreover, homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine that treats the individual as a whole.
