Opposed to spasm. The whole operation of antispasmodics is probably revulsive. The following are the chief reputed antispasmodics. Aether Sulphuricus, Asafoetida, Castoreum, Dracontium, Moschus, Oleum Animale Dippelii, and Valeriana- with the mental antispasmodics, abstraction, powerful emotions, fear, &c. Of direct antispasmodics, we have no example.
