Nux V cured my headaches - can I continue long term?

Hi, I had chronic headaches with the following characteristics:

1. Pain and heaviness in the head. Pain in the back of head (occiptal region)
2. Pain usually due to heavy eating / rich foods / fried, fatty foods etc.
3. Pain starts 2/3 hours after eating.
4. Also, have associated symptoms like bloating, flatulence, indigestion, heartburn
5. Have general feelings of being 'let-down', no energy/stamina in body. Get tired easily.

About 45 days back, I started taking Nux vomica 30C, 2 pills, 3 times a day.

I took the above medicine for about 10 days.

To my great relief, I found that ALL my problems go away.

The headaches, the flatulence, heartburn, indigestion all go away. Also, I feel more energetic and 'Happy'

After 10 days, I STOPPED taking this medicine. So what happened is all the symptoms started again

So again I started taking Nux V. And again ALL problems WENT AWAY.

My question is:

1. Can I take Nux V 30C long term (maybe for ever?)

Please can any body advise.


1. I am thinking that at this stage, there is no point trying some other medicine.
2. Nux V has worked great for me and so it is better to continue with it.
3. Only worry that I have is, will something bad happen if I take longterm?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
it is better way that medicine should be used only as and when required not so frequently. However you may change your habits, diet etc.whcih can also be helpful to you.

These are not pills that you can continue long term.

These are energy medicines which stimulate the body to respond in the right direction and once that response has started all further doses are useless and will start becoming harmful at some point of time.

You have already taken more than the required number of doses.

If and when symptoms return, you take a signle dose of Nux-v 200c and do not repeat the dose.

But, I doubt if Nux-V will be curative long term as it is not a deep enough medicine to cure chronic diseases.
