Description of medicine: Decoction of baranza (Decoctum Lycopodii selaginosi)
BRAIN'S BROWN (Decoctum Lycopodii selaginosi). 5% decoction of the grass of boulder-barantz (Irba Hyperziae selaginis, syn. Lusorium selago L.), herewith. moons (Lusorodiaseae).
The ingestion of Baran broth causes a strong vegetative reaction, salivation, sweating, muscle fibrillation, a decrease in blood pressure, a change in heart rate, a decrease in breathing, a general painful condition, severe and prolonged (up to 2 to 6 hours) nausea and repeated (up to 5 - 8 times or more ) vomiting. Nausea is worse when taking alcohol and smoking tobacco. When combined with the intake of alcoholic beverages and broth baranetsa, a relatively reflex aversion to alcohol is produced relatively quickly. In this regard, broth baranets used to treat patients with chronic alcoholism.
Treatment of broth baranets carried out in specialized medical institutions under the supervision of a physician (usually in combination with psychotherapy).
Treatment brew broth only 3 to 4 days after the cessation of alcohol consumption. Assign inside 80 - 100 ml of freshly prepared 5% solution of broth. After 3–15 minutes, 3–5 ml of an alcoholic beverage (vodka or wine) is given and at the same time they make the beverage smell. Vomiting reaction occurs after 10 - 15 minutes, and sometimes later (after 1 - 3 hours), to accelerate the development of aversion to alcohol, re-give an alcoholic drink before each vomiting reaction. Usually, by the end of the session, not only alcoholic beverages, but even their verbal designation (the word “vodka”) causes nausea and vomiting. In some cases, a negative reaction is produced after 2 - 3 combinations. In order to prevent the recurrence of alcoholism, further treatment is carried out (1 - 2 sessions) when there is a craving for alcohol (after six months, 1 - 2 years or more, depending on the condition of the patient and his reaction to alcohol).
The method of treatment with small doses of baranza is also used, which practically does not give complications. Assign a 5% solution of broth 10 to 15 ml in the first half of the day (daily dose of 30-40 ml). After taking the decoction, the patient takes a sip of an alcoholic drink and then is present at sessions of apomorphine therapy, which are held with other patients. This is usually sufficient to cause nausea and an emetic reaction. In some patients, a vegetative reaction develops: salivation, sweating. Over 10 15 such procedures produce a negative reaction to alcohol.
Broth baranets prepared as follows: 10 g of crushed herbs are placed in a flask, pour 200 ml of water, boil for 15 minutes on low heat; the broth is cooled, topped up with water to 200 ml, wring out the grass, filtered. Broth deteriorates quickly, so it is preferable to apply it immediately after cooking. In the refrigerator it can be stored no more than 2 days.
