At the thirthy-ninth meeting of the Sudwestdeutschen Irrenärzte in Karlsruhe on November 7th and 8th, 1908, Dr. Haymann, of Freiburg, spoke on the use of different preparations of bromine in the treatment of epilepsy. For years experiments have been made with the object of discovering a preparation to take the place of bromide of potassium, so as to avoid bromism. Many of the preparations tried were useless; they either contained too little bromine or were absurdly expensive. Experiments have been carried on in the Freiburg Psychiatric Clinique with the newer preparations—brominin, neuronal, bromglidine, and sabromin. As a result sabromin is recommended for the treatment of epilepsy in all cases where the bromides of potassium cannot be used, with the exception of temporary excited conditions.
