Origin : Chemically prepared.
Background : This compound exists as colorless prismatic crystals with a salty taste. It is not used commercially.
Preparation : The crystals are dissolved in alcohol, diluted, and succussed.
Remedy Profile : People who respond best to Ammonium brom. tend to be timid and lack self-confidence. They fear failure and criticism, and are often resentful of other people. They have a tendency to bite their nails.
Key symptoms linked with this remedy include neuralgic headaches, sore eyes, ovarian problems, and epilepsy. Symptoms may appear concurrently or individually. The constrictive head pains are like a band above the ears. During the aura (the warning sensation) preceding an epileptic fit, there may be feelings of suffocation and faintness, along with sighing and a need to walk around the room.
Eye symptoms typically include sore, irritated eyes that feel as if they contain sand. There may be mucus bathing the eyes, swollen eyelids, and possibly a pterygium (a wing-shaped thickening of the conjunctiva). In the evening the eyes feel large, with constantly blurred vision.
In women, symptoms may be associated with the ovaries. They may include nagging, neuralgic pains, bleeding of the uterus, and hard swelling, especially of the left ovary, possibly in conjunction with eye irritation. Ammonium brom. may also be prescribed for a tormenting, tickly, spasmodic cough, such as whooping cough, or it may be given for a strangling cough with mucus that tends to occur in the morning. Coughing may be incessant at night.
Symptoms Better : For warmth; for warm drinks.
Symptoms Worse : For open air or cold air.
