Contains the Essential Elements of the Animal Organization-Potash and Lime
of a Syrup with a SLIGHTLY ALKALINE REACTION. It Differs in its Effects from all Analogous Preparations; and it possesses the
important properties of being pleasant to the taste, easily borne by the
: "omach, and harmless under prolonged use. It Has Gained a wide Reputation, particularly in the treatment of Pulmonary
Tuberculosis, Chronic Bronchitis, and other affections of the respiratory organs. It has also been employed with much success in various nervous
and debilitating diseases. Its Curative Power is largely attributable to its stimulant, tonic, and nutritive
properties, by means of which the energy of the system is recruited. Its Action is Prompt; it stimulates the appetite and the digestion, it promotes
assimilation, and it enters directly into the circulation with the food
products. The prescribed dose produces a feeling of buoyancy, and removes depression
and melancholy; hence the preparation is of great value in the treatment of mental and nervous affections. From the fact, also, that it exerts a double tonic influence, and induces a healthy flow of the secretions, its use is indicated in a wide range of diseases.
The success of Fellows Syrup of Hypophosphites has tempted certain persons to offer imitations of it for sale. Mr. Fellows, who has examined samples of several of these, finds that no two of them are identical, and that all of them differ from the original in composition, in freedom from acid reaction, in susceptibility to the effects of oxygen when exposed to light or heat, in the property of retaining the strychnine in solution, and in the medicinal effects.
As these cheap and inefficient substitutes are frequently dispensed instead of the genuine preparation, physicians are earnestly requested, when prescribing the Syrup, to write “Syr. Hypophos. Fellows."
As a further precaution, it is advisable that the Syrup should be ordered in the original bottles; the distinguishing marks which the bottles (and the wrappers surrounding them) bear can then be examined, and the genuineness
or otherwise of the contents thereby proved.
