Contains the Essential Elements of the animal Organization
Potash and Lime;
The Tonlcs-Quinine and Strychine;
And the Vitalizing Constituent,Phosphorus; the whole combined
in the form 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 stomach, and harmless under prolonged use. It has Cained 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 nu
tritive 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.
NOTICE=CAUTION. The success of Fellows' Syrup of Hypophosite bas 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 proven.
