Conium and Sulphur - Advice needed

According to Abdur Rehman's encyclopadia, Conium and Sulphur is antidote with each other. What is actual fact? Have any third remedy which can make a good trio form with con and sulp?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
They *might* antidote each other if the symptoms that have been created by one, happen to be matched by the other.

In actual fact ANY remedy can antidote another if the symptoms match - obviously some remedies are more similar to each other and will be more useful for this purpose.

Antidoting means to neutralize the bad effects of a medicine, which was either given too often or given in to large a dose.

Dear Brisbane Homeopath,
Thanks for your answer. If I take Sulphur, will it destroy the good effects of Conium? Have any way to take benefit from sulphur without lossing the benefit and achievement of conium?
sadeqahmed last decade
If Conium cured you, its effect cannot be destroyed. Cure is cure, it is not temporary.

If your state has changed from Conium (cured the conium state) but you now have new symptoms that require Sulphur, there is no reason not to expect to get good results from it.

If you took the Conium and it only helped part of your case, but now are looking at Sulphur to fix another part - that is much less predictable. Sometimes this 'zig zagging' of remedies can be helpful, if the practitioner has some skill at it. In such a situation however, the Conium has not cured - there could be a relapse by using a second remedy that is similar to the first.

Dear Brisbane,
Thanks for your reply with valuable information. Conium has not cured me, but improve my condition. Can I take conium and sulphur together?
sadeqahmed last decade
You should never take two remedies together. Always take remedies well apart from one another. In a chronic case I would wait 1-2 weeks before deciding to change to a different remedy.

I cannot judge how well Sulphur suits you as I know nothing of your case.

Dear Brisbane Homeopath,
Thanks for your reply. How many days gap should be given between two different 30 potency remedy to avoid antidote or inimical action? In remedy relationship chart, duration is mentioned for each remedy. But I could not understand, is the same duration applicable for all potency of a remedy?

Another question, if any bad symptom occured from any mother tincture, will it be cured by 6 potency of same remedy?
sadeqahmed last decade
I don't believe in inimical action - if a remedy is indicated, you take it, and it will help (hopefully cure). If it isn't indicated then you shouldn't take it.

A homoeopath should be supervising your case. There are too many variables to be giving you rules for taking specific remedies. Each indvidual has their own reactions and length of time they are affected by medicines. Some patients need many doses, some need few, some need doses given quickly, some need months between doses.

I always use the specific symptoms the person produces as a bad reaction to choose the remedy, which is the advice given in our Organon of Medicine. Homoeopathy requires cleverness and flexibility on the part of the practitioner rather than following rules blindly. This means each case must be examined carefully to decide on dosage.

Dear Brisbane Homeopath,
Thanks for your reply. The remedies, which follow well each other, can be taken at a time, right?
sadeqahmed last decade
What I am trying to say, is that I do not follow those rules - 'this follows that', 'don't give this when that has been given' etc. I always give the remedy that is indicated by the symptoms. When the symptoms call for a remedy you give it.

I understand you are trying to assess the suitability of taking one particular remedy after another. The answer always is the same - if the remedy suits the problem you are taking it for, by virtue of the symptoms it produces which match the symptoms you have (Law of Similars), then it is suitable to take it.

Taking a medicine mechanically (because someone said it would be good for that, or because someone used it in the past for something similar, or someone was in the habit of using certain remedies together) takes all the intelligence out of prescribing, and then who knows what will happen?

Did you ever use the Conium?
cjl215 last decade
poster said they used conium and it did not cure all of the problem. that is
why they wanted to know about taking conium and sulphur
at same time.(told no)

Or just sulphur, but were told if conium did not cure them totally,
then what it did help might go away if they took sulphur-bc
the conium was only a partial cure.
