side effect from Metal album

I was given Arsenicum Album for anxiety. One pellet (200)an hour under the tongue for three hours. After I took the second pellet I immediately felt my nose and throat dry up a bit. A few weeks later my nose was completely dry and crusted. I was then given silicea and then I got burning in the mouth. I received an antidote and have not taken anything else. I am so dry I can't breathe. I was suppose to board a plane last week and I had to cancel my flight because the air was so dry I couldn't breath. I can only breath comfortably when the air in not dry. My skin seems a bit dryer too. Drinking water doesn't help.
My mouth is still burning a little.
Very scared and need help.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
This is an example of the reason that I always avoid the 200 potency, it can give severe aggravation.

From a practical point get some Charcoal from a health food store .
Homeopathically take Carbo Veg 3x at hourly intervals until relief is obtained . As a backup get Hep Sul and Nux Vom.

Thank you for your reply. I will start on the Carbo Veg.

My nose,throat and tongue feel dry when I breathe. I feel parched.
It seems like my moisture level in not right no matter how much I drink. My eyes and skin feel dryer than normal also.

It has been 4 months since I took the metal album. Why hasn't my body corrected this situation on its own?

I was given Arsenicum Album for ANXIETY ....

The problem is anxiety.

One may ask why you picked the name sandcastle? You will be helping us to find a constitutional remedy for you.

I have used Gels 30 to clear a blocked nose but this blockage was due to catarrh.

I do not know if your blocked nose due to aggravation with Ars alb would also react in the same manner but it would be interesting if you use Gels 30 and report resul

Dose 2 balls under the tongue. If this remedy is correct you should feel relief in about 10 minutes.

Sandcastle was my hotmail address that I set-up when I was in London, England visiting a friend.
Sand for Sandy- my name; castle because I was in England.

I would like to remark here that the Ars Album is NOT metal album. It is arsnic.

One needs to know what one has taken to proceed. A fear reaction will cause unnessary responses because the mind is mistaken. My youngest son took this for 7 years.

As Kuldeep says, the fear anxiety is the basic problem here. The response was more than you expected and it increased with anxiety. You are unwittingly keeping it going. If I had you here, I could prove it in about 15 minutes.

Go to any health store and get a bottle of Bach Rescue Remedy to see you through this anxiety until another remedy corrects this. Half a dropper every 2-3 hours.

Try the remedies mentioned. Please let us know how you progress.

Blessings, Sabra

Yes, I do have anxiety. I am afraid I will have this for the rest of my life. My silicea experience increased my anxiety even more.

When I took the silicea(30C) liquid form, it hit me. I took 3 drops under the tongue and went to bed. I woke up about 3 hours later, shaking.
It hit my nervous system. But...24 hours later the dryness sensation when I was breathing was gone. I felt great, and happy. I thought I was cured so I didn't take anymore. Unfortunately, the dryness sensation returned in about 3 days. I then took 3 drops under the tongue for the next 4 days. (hit my nerves each time; about half an hour after I took the remedy)
I did feel some dryness relief. After a month I noticed my hair was falling out, I woke up sweating, I would wake up abruptly, missed my period, got big bulbous pimples on my face and inside my nose and I got burning in my mouth and vagina. I then took an antidote and these symptoms are now gone. (except I still have a little burning in my mouth.)

I am afraid. This medicine is more powerful than I realized. Or.. am I too sensitive to it.

thank you for your responses.
I feel better that I have support through this.

It is not medicine it is mind which is obseving the effect. I will like to tell you a secret here. Homeopathy medicine works best if a patient is given medicine secretly. This way patient is not focussiong upon him/herself to seek the effect. Seeking effect damages the whole concept.

We will like to listen more of your story to find a constituinal remedy.

Do you not hear yourself??? "I am afraid I will have this for he rest of my life." So now, the sub conscious hears this remark and will do it's best to oblige you.

Please read the letter at the end of the posting on "2 year old with diarrhea" This will explain (at length) what the mouth does to the sub conscious.

Please continue to report in spite of our wringing our hands, we truely would like to help.

Tell us about the anxiety. Where and when did it appear? What happened to you? We know about the dryness, etc. Tell us about you as a person.

Blessings, Sabra

I understand what are you saying. I know the mind is powerful, I just have to stay calm and think positive.

I am 47 yrs old and I have had a couple of panic or anxiety situations in the past. I would take an ativan once in awhile and it would calm me right down. They never lasted for long periods of time and were usually triggered by an event (as my doctor pointed out to me)for example, my husband and I lost our jobs at the same time a few years ago.
However, last fall I had my tonsills removed. I stayed at home for 2 weeks and went back to work. After the operation I was on pain killers and antibiotics, and lost 12 pounds. Anyway, on the 2nd day of work, I felt weak,looked pale and all of a sudden felt pins and needles in my face and down my back.That was the beginning of a long 2 months of anxiety attacks. My doctor thought that something physical occurred, and that my body was telling me to rest. I wasn't ready to go back to work.
This is what prompted me to try a homepathic remedy for anxiety. This was the first time I have ever tried homeopathy.
It is really unfortunate that I was given too high a dose from what I understand now.

I don't know what else you would like to know....I am married with 2 teenagers, work full time, a little on the quiet side and I have been told I am serious. I am tall, fair and big. Not fat,,,just big. The big Scandinavian type. I eat well, and have not been sick with anything but, the common cold and my anxiety once in awhile.

Things I dislike:
I will not go on rides(fairground rides) i hated them when I was small and I still hate them. I can handle the baby rides though.

Can't eat the white of an egg. Couldn't as a child..still can't. Something about the texture of them.

Loud people who talk alot.

Black spiders

going fast in a car or on a bike...I feel like I will lose control

My likes:

Day Dreaming
my good old friends
decorating my home
I use to like to dance ; only dream about that now.

I am hoping that the situation I am in now will be in the past shortly. I will never take breathing for granted again.

thank you for your help...

CYMARIN 10M is my first choice. The high potency is to try to avoid any strong responses. ONE dose only every THIRD week. You may take more doses, but only 3 weeks apart. Please write on calendar to keep track. I do not keep records.

Until you find this, get some BACH RESCUE REMEDY at the health store to help you relax. This is for panic and trauma. This may fill in the gaps when you are recovering and feeling not so well.

Please keep posting.
