The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Ars Alb Vs Natrum Mur which one?

I am 36 yrs of age. I am suffering from depression from last 3 years. I think the symptoms most resemble Ars Alb and Nat Mur.
I took one dose of Ars Alb a week back and I felt immediately better, however the symptoms returned.
I am tempted to try Nat Mur.
What should I do? Can Natrum Mur follow ars alb? Should I repeat another dose of Ars. Alb.

Due to continuous problems in personal life more then 5 years ago
I felt extremely insecure. Smallest problems wrecks me completely, I don't have enough nerve to push on with my life.
I keep going back to past problems and these causes gloom and dispair in me. I don't want to meet many people as I thing that will cause another problem. I can barely open my mouth in meetings, least some on rebukes me. In a nutshell confidence is at an all time low. I feel like a kid, looking for his mom for protection
As an e.g. If I am giving an interview and if I cannot answer one question in between. I get so nervous I cannot remember the answers of other question. I am unable to communicate , I fumble with words.
I am looking for continual psycological support, or I look to blame it on someone person around me to blame. I get really angry if someone sympathises with. Seems like he/she wanted me to fail and they are feeling good time and are putting on a show of sympathy.
I am continuously looking for work, something to do. In activity will kill me. Relaxing without doing anything is no relaxation. I feel really gloomy from 10:00AM to 2:00PM.
All this started about 10 years ago, when I went to a homeopath for cold, which was due to allergy which was never cured by medicine. I was in engineering at that time and had to endure repeated faliures, which I was never used to, The doctor also gave me some thing to kill the nervousness during the exam. He told me he gav me Heper Sulph but I am not sure.
My brief history is I had some respitory complications which I was in ICU on heavy medication for 17 days right after birth. I has asthama till the age of 16. However I don't have any respitory complaints since I left my poluted Mumbai. No cold either for which I saw the doctor for almost year and a half
Please help.

This is my second dose of Ars. Alb. 200C was not available so I took 30C. I feel very good psychologically, I can sleep better since I last took the medicine.
However my nose is dripping with cold, lot of sneezing, feel hot and my eyes are smarting as well. Is is also a little cold here in NY.
Please confirm if I should repeat the dose or take only 200C.
How can I complete the case so that the cure is permanent.
Thank you for your help.

Dr. Mahfooz,
I was feeling better. It is more then 2 weeks since I stopped taking Ars Alb. I am feeling restless again, with bouts of anger, dwelling on past etc.
For 2 weeks I slept well. Now again I am unable to sleep.
Should I continue with Ars.?
