Carcinosim 1m for depression

Last week I saw an acupuncturist while on vacation in Florida. She gave me six Carcinosim 1M pellets with instructions to dissolve in water and take before bed for depression. Does anyone out there have any experienece or knowledge about this remedy? I cannot find much information on it and I cannot say that I notice any changes or improvement. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I know little about carcinosin but I think it has no affect about depression. However, the Kings of Homeopathy says the folloing about it:

It is claimed the Carcinosin acts favorably and modifies all cases in which either a history of carcinoma can be elicited, or symptoms of the disease itself exist (J. H. Clarke, M. D).

Would one go to a homeopath seeking acupuncture? No.

Dear Sycotic,
Your sarcasm is unappreciated! You have assumed to know something that you didn't know! I did not state that I had gone to an acupuncturist for depression, but that the acupuncturist determined that there was some depression and therefore, prescribed it hence my posting.

My point (pardon the pun ) is that homeopathy like accupunture is a method of treatment that is effective only if the application , in our case the prescription is precise. The application of any remedy - particularily one involving a mental/emotion state should only be given after a case is carfully considered. The remedy choice and potency recommendation seems an inappropriate starting point to say the least. Carcinosin is more often than not a remedy to be considered after others have failed. However I have given it as a starter with fine results , only because it was clearly indicated. The above quote given by Clarke was written a long time ago , and much more is now known about it now. To answer your question your question truthfully. There is no reason not to use it for a case where ' depression ' is the chief complaint.Provided that it is clearly indicated- that is, Homeopathic to the case. In fact nowadays Carc. is chosen primarily on the mental/emotional aspects of the individual. As you have seen though it isnt helping and my guess would be because it wasnt carefully selected or based on the law of similars. A judicious homoeopath would probably not prescibe that remedy straight away and never in the manner recommended to you. If you havent finished taking the remnants of that medicine. I would recommend that you stop. These high potencies centecimals should not be repeated daily under any circumstance.

Oh . and Im sorry for my smart remarks.

Rereading your original post Im not sure of something. Did you disolve all the pellets at once and take the whole glass or was it repeated nightly ?
Sycotic last decade
As instructed, I dissolved all of the pellets (6 in total) in about 2' of water and drank it all. I did not repeat it because she only gave me enough pellets for the one time.

Since my Kent Materia Medica does not include this particular remedy, is there some other source that I can pick up that would include this and any other remedies not in my Materia Medica?
