The ABC Homeopathy Forum

help please....no homeopaths in my area.

I have posted Under 'Please Help, Sepia has stopped working' I really need help correcting my doseage of Sepia. I know this remedy is right for me but I am not aware of how to adjust the dose for my body's adjusting needs. I need to know what dose I should take next. I have been on 200c for 8 months now. I am noticing my body isn't responding to the 200C like it has in the past. I need to know if the dosage needs to be increased or decreased? Please, I do not want to completely revert back to the debilitating state of severe hormone Imbalance I was experiencing prior to the Sepia. This remedy suits me I just need help with the dosing. Thank you so much!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I've read your post when you posted before. Please clear this up.

When You say, ' you have been on Sepia 200c for 8 months now'

does that mean, you have been on Sepia, every day for 8 months straight???

If Yes, No wonder you are no longer responding to Sepia like you should.

If you have been on Sepia 200c for 8 months straight, I don't know what to tell you!

Sepia remedy

Hi all,
I am taking Sepia 200c weekly once for past 4 weeks. I have to admit that Sepia is helping me as I got cured 40% by way of improvement in my hormonal assay test.

But I have the following two syptoms along with:

1) Severe bloating for stomach and intestinal pain due to bloating and constipation

2) Urinary infection with white discharge - sometimes colourless and sometimes milky white

Are the above two normal symptoms of curing process or does the above two side effects say that the remedy is not apt for me ?

Stop the medicine, you are repeating too much and not giving time for your body to respond completely to the remedy.

Further doses act as interference if your body has not completed its response.

Thanks Sameer for the reply. Prior to this 2 months ago I started off with Sepia 30c daily once and I found that I got back the below mentioned two 'side-effects' within 5 days of continous intake and i would immediately stop it as the urinary burning made me unable to sit. Its funny the burning would stop only when I am flat on back or standing straight. I was unable to sit continously for even 5 minutes. This was funny. Never thought this homeo dose could be the cause. So after a break for 2 weeks started again with Sepia 30 c 4-5 pills per day. This time not able to tolerate for more than 3 days!! Same above 2 symptoms.
Since I am in child bearing years and looking to settle my hormonol imbalance, I consulted in this forum and got an answer that Sepia 200c (4-5 pills) once a week would be good. But alas! I not able to tolerate even once a week dose. I was told to continue thus for 2 -3 months means 8 - 12doses. But I am intolerant in the 4th dose itself.

Please suggest the right dosage as I want to cure my hormonal imbalance and safely get into pregnancy.

Dr Mahfooz , Sameer, Please refer to the below post and let me know whether I have to antidote the overdose of Sepia 200c that I have taken


If I should antidote, then what should I do ? Just eat raw onion and raw garlic. Will they stop the ill effects of over dosage ? I do not want to drink coffee as I do not like it.

I have pulsatilla 6c. Will a single dose of puls 6c remove the 'side-effects' ?

Hello jayachitra

Sepia 200 acts for a long time. You have taken 4 doses. You're a bit sensitive to sepia and if its your indicated remedy may be it can gradually improve your problems. So give some time say wait for 4 weeks from the last dose of sepia. If still side-effects persists then we shall consider anti-doting it.

Hi Maheeru,
Thanks for the reply. I have one doubt about homeopathy. I stopped taking homeo medicine after the unbearable side effect.
If i eat raw onion and raw garlic (just 2-3 pods), will it stop the Sepia previously taken from working ?
If I take homeo, should I stop eating raw onion and raw garlic, coffee (rarely) for life ?? Please let me know as I confused with the food limitation while on and after homepathy

Hi jayachitra

Sepia's action won't be affected by consumption of onion and garlic.

While taking homeopathic remedies its better to refrain from coffee, strong mint things, strong perfumes/cosmetics. Sometimes remedies have specific interaction either antidotal or incompatible action with certain stuff. But there are different views regarding consumption of coffee intake during treatment, some homeopaths have observed that cofee only affects in certain people. So generally refraining from things should be done only during treatment period and restrictions are not for life.

A safe way of taking remedy is --one should not consume anything 30 minutes before and after the intake of remedy. Also during this period one should make sure there's no strong smelling odour by the side.

ok thanks for the info, Maheeru. But tell me one thing, after waiting for 4 weeks if ill effects still persist, will pulsatilla 6c antidote the excess Sepia 200c taken ? I am unable to bear the ill effects especially the second one as it does not allow me to sit on a chair for even 10 min.

Hi Jayachitra

No you won't antidote sepia with pulsatilla 6c. It's not advisable to use puls. immediately before or after sepia as its inimical to sepia. Vegetable acids like citric do interact with sepia and reduce the action. so if you can't tolerate the effects you can consume citric fruits. But it'd be better to wait it out till 4 weeks and see how things change after the period.

I did not post these cases so, you could self diagnose. Please do not give yourself these remedies.
