sepia 30 c thrice daily for five days and report any change j k mohla
akshaymohl last decade
Hi jammy
you can try (Natrum mur-200) one dose daily only 5 days and stop and wait for 1 week any change cantact me please.
Good luck
faisal qureshi last decade
SEPIA is indicated here but 30c will not make much difference to the mental state of the patient.

i would suggest SEPIA 200c two doses at 4 hours interwal on one day and SEPIA 1M next week.

Based on the improvement, either SEPIA 1M can be continued one dose per week or go to 10M one or two doses at 30 to 40 days interval.

akshaymohl last decade
Hello dr. mohla, thanks for ur advice.

Till now i have taken 5 days of doses of sepia 200c two times a day.I am experiencing almost 10% improvement esp in motivation for work and my sleep hours are reduced( i used to sleep much).About emotions and low libido, i can say that there is slight improvement like 5%but cant perceive as absolute improvement. may be it will improve after some days of treatment.

2. now i am facing the problem that after taking sepia , i am expierencing constipation(IBS type).I had told in my main complaint that i have IBS specific constipation for almost one and half years, but from last 6 months it has significantly reduced so it was not bothering me. But after taking sepia i hav been expierencing constipation like symptoms.although i can manage for sometime with it, if u would like to advice some remedy pls advice.
jammy last decade
please stop your doses and wait for at least 15 days for SEPIA to work and then you will see that you will get sustained benifit.
rishimba last decade
i agree eith dr rishiba j k mohla
akshaymohl last decade
hello doctors

As advised by dr rishimba and dr mohla i stopped my sepia 200c doses on 20907 and wait for 15 days for effect of sepia.

1. Today 15 days hav gone past since i took my first sepia dose on 14907.i stopped my doses on 209.Thereafter i didnot notice any further improvement in my condition.In my previous posts i told that i had seen improvement in motivation and emotion ,(and my sleep hours were reduced thnkfully) but not so much in libido.But these effects did not improve in last 9 days and although there were some remnant positive effects ,but were not of the same level of improvement as was earlier.I mean to say that after stopping the doses there was not much consolidation of plus effects.3or 4 days earlier i was feeling slightly bad mood so i took one sepia 200c dose and i felt better.

2.I want to tell u that i am taking allopathic antidepressant sertraline for last 6 months(100 mg daily at night). It will not be possible for me to stop the drug as i am taking it for past 6 months and also it helped in my IBS.

3. so sir, please advice me now regarding next doses or treatment. Thanks in advance
jammy last decade

..'SIDE EFFECTS: The most common side effects of sertraline are sleepiness, nervousness, insomnia, dizziness, nausea, tremor, skin rash, upset stomach, loss of appetite, headache, diarrhea, abnormal ejaculation, dry mouth and weight loss. Important side effects are irregular heartbeats, allergic reactions and activation of mania in patients with bipolar disorder.

If sertraline is discontinued abruptly, some patients experience symptoms such as abdominal cramps, flu like symptoms, fatigue and memory impairment. Although this reaction is not well established, it is reasonable to gradually reduce the dose when therapy is discontinued.

It has been suggested that SSRIs may cause depression to worsen and even lead to suicide in a small number of patients. These potential side effects are difficult to evaluate in depressed patients because depression can progress with or without treatment, and suicide is itself a consequence of depression. Moreover, the evidence supporting these potential side effects is weak. Therefore, no conclusions can yet be drawn about the relationship between SSRIs and worsening depression and suicide. Until better information is available, patients receiving SSRIs should be monitored for worsening depression and suicidal tendencies. '

Your problem of Constipation is the side effect of the above medicine.

Take Nux Vom 30 at bed time and

Natrum Muir 12X at 8AM and 6 PM

(4 pills at a time of both the medicines.)
Rajendra last decade
Thank you dr. rajendra for ur quick reply.

1. firstly i wud like to clarify you that right now i am not suffering from any constipation even when i am taking sertraline.when i took sepia consistently for 7 days earlier then i had a problem of constipation that too was not severe . it subsided in 2 days.I told in my post that i am taking sertraline to know whether it contradicts sepia action. I know there are side effects of ssri's but it itself has not caused me any side effects.it will be difficult for me to end it abruptly. 2.) i think sepia had gud effect on me3.) i know sertraline can cause decreased libido but i am having decreased libido before i started sertraline . again thanking you all doctors for their quick and kind reply
jammy last decade
repeat sepia 200c thrice daily for five days j k mohla
akshaymohl last decade
Good. Follow Dr. Mohla's advice.
Rajendra last decade
Hello to doctors , sorry for delay in writing response

Actually i was not able to follow dr mohla's advice of 3doses aday initially .I was able to took 2doses but forgot to take 3rd dose for first two days due to my work schedule so i took three doses rest of my days and took it for one more day with two doses.

Now the result: There is ofcourse improvementbut my area of concern is mainly decreased libido, decreased attraction and desire is the problem. Although there is improvement of 25% ifollowing sepia,but i have not been able to feel the complete result. regarding emotions is same slight improvement. Sleep hours are reduced thats good effect i hav noticed through out my treatment.And also recently i have been able to enjoy music that is fast music but not consistently. So inconsistency of results is also the problem

Thanks to dr mohla for his advice.
I hav read that damiana is good in treating sexual effects of nervous depression .Shud i start damiana along with sepia or sepia alone is sufficient. Thanks in advance
jammy last decade

akshaymohl last decade
