Information about the agent

How do you recognize patients who need Stramonium?

Children can also be affected. Stramonium people are overly direct, their language can be lewd and at times fecal. They find direct touch unbearable, almost painful, and therefore try to avoid it. Overall, the patient seems uncontrollable and spontaneously excitable by the smallest external stimuli.


Stramonium is indicated for all typical symptoms that are ameliorated or aggravated by the following modalities:


  • normal light
  • in society


  • extremely bright light
  • being alone of the patient
