Please please help. Pulsatilla and child.Hello, I would be so so grateful for any advice you can offer.
My 5yr old son has had many problems over the year. He was very ill for two years and recently diagnosed with CFS/ME - he suffers terrible anxiety when fatigued.
He has always been very clingy to me when his fatigue is at its worst and was prescribed Pulsatilla 1m by a homeopath we visited. Due to a bout of bad health we were late in starting the pulsatilla and have taken two doses in the last two weeks (our homeopath is now away for 6wks).
He took the 2nd dose three days ago and, it would seem, since then he has had the most horrific compulsions and anxiety we have ever seen. We have just had to get him out of bed having tried to get him to sleep for over two hours because he cannot stop repeating everything that comes into his head (he cannot stop talking since that point generally) and he wants me to write everything down in case he forgets it. Could this have anything to do with the Pulsatilla? Will this pass?
I appreciate that this is little info for you but I am desperate to get this posted and get some feedback, please please help me if you can as I have never seen anything like this in my son and am so worried that, by giving him this dose, I have done some damage.
Any advice/feedback is really appreciated. Thank you.

Hmm.. too high a potency and too much repetition. Staring a chronic case with 1M without judging the sensitivity of the patient, and then recommending a mechanical repetition 'every x days' is always asking for trouble.
Classical homeopaths never repeat a dose of the C potency (in dry form) until there is a clear relapse, and anyways certainly not a 1M so soon.
Now do not give him any further remedies for 3 weeks, and hope that this aggravation passes over. If it doesn't it will have to be anti-doted.
So, my advice for now would be just wait.
sameervermani last decadeThank you for your reply, I appreciate it.
Is it usual for 'aggravations' to pass? Everything I have read, whilst searching for an answer to this problem, is that homeopathic remedies have no lasting ill effects (if they're the wrong remedy).
I am not confident in going back to the same homeopath...is antidoting taking another remedy?

This is not true, just remember, something which has great power to heal will also have some power to harm as well.
You are right, anti-doting means taking another remedy in the most gentle of doses, but as I said, it would be best to wait right now for atleast 10 days, and then you can come back and I will be happy to guide you in case this needs to be anti-doted even after waiting.
