The remedy is generally used for nervous symptoms, which may develop into manic nervous states. It is best suited to adults who behave “childishly” and to children who cannot play or interact with others because of their dullness or delayed mental development. Baryta mur. may be prescribed for mental disability in children whose development is delayed, and for elderly people with retardation. Principal physical symptoms treated with this remedy include disorders of the nervous system such as seizures, perhaps occurring periodically, with stiffness, restlessness, and a loss of sensibility. The hands and feet may swell, and the limbs may feel paralyzed and heavy, with trembling and twitching.
Baryta mur. is additionally used for acutely swollen glands, possibly the cervical or parotid glands, accompanied by a sore throat and possibly tonsillitis. Stroke symptoms or severe eczema may also respond to the remedy.
