What does COMPARE in materia medica mean?Hi, I have materia medica and below every remedy detail there is a word 'COMPARE' with a list of some remedies, for e:g while reading details for NUX VOMICA the relationships to other remedies eads at the bottom-
Nux seeds contain Copper, notice the cramp-causing proclivities of both Complementary: Sulphur; Sepia.
Compare: Kali-carb.; Hydr.; Bry.; Lyc.; Graph.
Antidotes: Coff.; Ignat.; Cocc.
So can anyone explain the following relationships as inimical and compare?

In this case one should not gice Zinc after Nux.vomica. It may produce some undesirable effects.
These lists are not sacrosanct. They are purely based on the experience of some authors. They get copied from one book to the other.
Nash says that he doesn't believe in inimicals. He says he will give the so called inimical remedy as a follower IF IT IS INDICATED.
