Please take three doses of Crotalus Horr. 30c at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and report back after 10 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

In Dubai you should get homeo remedies at SANA PHARMACY in sana signal, karama.
