Antidote required , please help.

Hi everyone,

i have a problem of constipation and i consulted a doctor who prescribed me lycopodium 30 one dose and sulphur 30 one dose twice a day for three days and get back for feedback.

However i have noticed that i have kind of lost my sense of smell and there is too much congestion in my head so much so that my head aches a lot. Also there is stiffness in my neck.

Could you please advise me what is the correct antidote as i am sceptical of going to the doctor. i probably will visit him but i just want to know what may be the right antidote for this.

Thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please stop all medication and take Nuxvomica-200 (3 drops)one dose at night.

It is a homeopathic aggravation. You may take the antidote...however...pl. be advised that you are on the road to recovery.

More of Lyco and Sulphur are not needed at this time.

30c potency should not be repeated so often, she is taking 3 doses on 2 remedies on a single day for 3 days.

That is a very strange prescription.

30c is a powerful potency , repeating it so often is bound to cause aggravation . The curative process needs time after every dose for the body to respond.

It is not good prescription at all.After taking sulpher,lycopodium should not prescribed.It is inimical.This patient took lyco-sulpher-lyco.This is not the way of prescribing.You are on the road to recovery-i don't agree with this.It is tthe effects of drug toxicity.You can take nuxvom as prescribed by mahfooz.

Thanks again dr mahfooz.

i will report the effects after taking the remedy.

Yes it is not a good prescription coz Sulphur follows Lyco well , however ..the reverse is not true.

So alternating these two particular meds is not correct. Further, both these meds are deep acting meds.

If the impact is troubling you a lot, to antidote...drink two cups of strong coffee and during the day drink a great deal of water.

However, on its own the impact will wear off in about 2/3 days.

Yes, one of the two meds has worked for you all right..leading to a homeopathic aggravation ....which suggests that some recovery from the disease is taking place.

Sulpur DOES NOT follow Lycopodium well! They are inimical to each other no matter which way you take them - not that 2 remedies should be taken together in the first place anyway! The Homoeopath should have chosen the ONE best suited to the case.
Topaz last decade
Just a single dose of Pulsatilla 6c will set things straight, as it will anti-dote both Sulphur and Lycopodium.

Nux Vomica will not anti-dote this.

Mr. Topaz,
Please refer to Boericke Materia Medica... table of drug relationships....it quotes from Kent that Sulphur follows Lyco well...however reverse is not true.

So please get your facts right and avoid ridiculing others. Also, stop misleading the less informed.

Dear Pankaj Varma,

It is stated in William Boericke's Materia Medica on the Relationship of Remedies that they are inimical to eachother.

Check the back of the book which starts at page 1287-1299 of the 9th edition and you will see for yourself.

By the way, these ar not my facts, they are the facts from the book. It also shows in this section, if you look under anti-dotes, that Nux Vomica will not be there. So i don't undrstand how you didn't alert the patient to this fact.

It's a good thing we have Sameer on this forum to set things right.

I am sorry if you felt ridiculed but given the facts, that was not my intention.

Mrs Topaz.

Sorry for calling you Mr. Topaz instead of Ms.Topaz as it was not clear from your post.

Pl. see Boericke Materia Medica 2005 reprint, by B.Jain publishers on page 1099 in drug relationship chart under Sulphur....it states as I have mentioned.

By the way Sameer is not the only one who knows homeopathy. Look at the number of cases at ABC Forum where he is providing guidance but the patient has not seen any appreciable difference in his / her condition. For instance...case of Er. Panday ....he is struggling for last two months.

By merely quoting from books if Sameer thinks or some one thinks that he has cat's whiskers....then the shoe is on the wrong foot....coz....skill is in handling cases successfully.

People like me stopped discussing cases with Sameer coz he refuses to listen to reason.

Thanks and a very happy new year,

Dear Pankaj Varma,

No offence taken. It's just Topaz.

I know what it says on page 1099 but in relation to this persons case these remedies are inimical to eachother because the patient was told to take both remedies twice a day for three days...therefore making the prescription inimical.

As a rule, the cycle Lyc-Sulph-Calc-Lyc is the order in which these remedies do not become inimical.

Lyc after Sulph is inimical but Sulph after Lyc is not, you are correct, but relating to this patients case it became inimical.

I am aware that Sameer is not the only one on this forum who knows Homoeopathy. Dr Saini(sarup)is also a great Homoeopath who also knows what his talking about.

Before you decide to judge Sameer, look at ALL the cases where people he has treated have benefited greatly and are on a sure path to recovery!

You and i both know that it can take weeks, months or even years to attain proper cure and by unravelling all the layers this can be achieved through Homoeopathy. It is all dependent on what is going on with the patient.

I, for example achieved a cure in one week with a Homoeopathic remedy for a condition that i had for 12 years and i see it taking others months to achieve the same cure for the same condition that i had. It's all about the individual.

Wishing you all the best and a Happy New Year to you as well.


By the way, i mentioned Sameer in my post as he was the one who provided the correct anti-dote as being Pulsatilla to this case.
Topaz last decade
Thanks for your post Topaz.

Lyco and Sulpur are deep acting meds. The books might say that a dose of Pulsatilla will anti-dote the two.

However, experience suggests that drinking large quantity of strong coffe is a better anti-dote. That is why I suggested so in my latter post.

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Furthermore, Dr. Mehfoozurrehman suggested Nux Vomica 200 coz the basic complaint of Zeus is 'constipation'.

Pulsatilla ...corresponds to watery stools.
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Zeus god was looking for and needed an anti-dote and Nux Vom anti-dotes neither of these two remedies. I believe that's why Puls was suggested.

I think your suggestion of coffee was a worthy one and if Sulph and Lyc are deep acting meds i also believe it is wise to first anti-dote and then resume trearment for constipation.

Zeus has obviously had this problem of constipation for a while and a little longer with this problem is better than creating new problems with the two deep acting meds and his bad reaction to them.

Coffee was a good suggestion though.

Topaz last decade
Dear Topaz,
Zeus should post his full case details here for others to help him in an appropriate way.

Details posted by him are very little to find a costitutional med for him.

Appreciate your understanding of the situation.

Best wishes

By the way...Nux Vomica is used by many doctors as a first homeopathic med to be given to a patient to neutralise the negative impact of all previous medication ...including ..allallopathic medication.

In some cases on this forum, I have also
recommended (in the past) the use of Nux as a first med where I noticed that substantial allopathic drugging had taken place.

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Dear Pankaj Varma,

Zeus was looking for an appropriate anti-dote and now he has several to choose from. Hopefully he does take the Pulsatilla.

I guess if he wants to continue after the anti-dote then he will post his case...providing he hasn't been scared off with so many mixed reactions!

I'm sure if he chooses the right advice and remedy from this forum and the he will be back once it has worked.

In the case of allopaths using Nux Vomica to neutralise their drugs, i am aware that it does good but in the case of Homoeopathy, sometimes more suitable anti-dotes than Nux Vomica are necessary.

With your experience, i am sure even you know when to differentiate when to and when not to prescribe Nux Vomica.

Topaz last decade
Dear Topaz,
I think you got me wrong.

Not allopaths but many homeopaths use Nux Vomica across the board as a anti-dote for any kind of drugging....coz practice shows that it works.

Anyways, there are better things to talk about on a New Year eve.

best wishes

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Dear Pankaj Varma,

Allopaths also recommend Nux Vomica when all their poison STILL doesn't work and i understand that Homoeopaths use it as it really does cover a lot and is the major anti-dote of remedies. I simply said that if one were more appropriate then it should be used as an anti-dote.

Well it's nearly New Years Eve here where i'm from and i'm sure New Years Day will be the biggest seller of Nux Vomica-where it is the most appropriate!

Best Wishes to you also,

Topaz last decade
Yes Yes Yes !!!!
You hit the nail on the head !!!!!

Nux Vomica is needed on the morning of New Year by many.
Depends upon what 'heights' one has indulged himself / herself to.

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
True, true, it does depend on what 'heights'

Unfortunately many won't be able to take this remedy on new years day as it may anti-dote a remedy they are already on. They'll just have to settle for a coffee or 8, i guess :)

Anyway...enough about that. Have a good one!

Topaz last decade
Two doses of Nux Vomica 200 in 15 minute gap...surest way to get over a 'hangover' !!
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
A patient has taken Selenium for sexual and uro-genital problems. But he face aggravation like prostate and abdomen pain; and also decline about erection. Now he only get slight erection in morning. Prostatic fluid secretion has either same or have increased.

In order to undo the aggravation of Selenium (Selenium-3x tablet few months ago; and now Selenium-6 three times per day for one month and Selenium-30 weekly dose for one month), I have suggested him Puls-30 weekly dose. Is it ok? I also suggested him to take Conium-200 one dose per 3 days. Is the conium can be taken along with puls?
