Mode of action
R58 functions to increase cardiac strength and function, and to tonify the circulatory system.
Adonis vernalis: Similar in action to Digitalis purpurea, without the cumulative effects; strengthens the myocardium; arrhythmia and tachycardia.
Convallaria majalis: Cardiac tonic; myocardial weakness, endocarditis, nervous palpitations, myocardial hypertrophy.
Crataegus: Increases coronary blood flow; increases the force and rhythmicity of cardiac contractions.
Digitalis: Myocardial weakness, heart failure, oedema; bradycardia, tachycardia, palpitations.
Helleborus niger: Diuretic; oedematous swellings; cardiac palpitations.
