Excerpt from Therapeutics and Materia Medica, Vol. 2 of 2: A Systematic Treatise on the Action and Uses of Medicinal Agents, Including Their Description and History Antispasmodics are stimulant medicines, which control spasm by their action upon the spinal marrow rather than upon the brain. Spasm is the abnormal involuntary contraction of muscular fibre. It may be tonic or clonic. Tonic contraction is permanent, clonic contraction implies alternate rigidity and relaxation of the affected muscles. Three classes of spasmodic affections may be recognized, which arise from as many different kinds of causes. First, and least directly related to our present subject, are those in which the blood contains a poisonous matter generated within the system, consisting of retained excreta, as in Bright's disease, idio pathic jaundice, 850.
