asthmaMy husband has been suffering from asthma for many years now. But, it comes all of a sudden and becomes very bad. Sometime back, he used to have blackouts and would drop on the floor. He seems to respond quite well to arsenicum album. till the time he takes the medicine, he is fine but when he stops, it comes back again. Maybe, the potency is not correct or the duration is not correct. Since, he has recurring attacks, he might need to take medicine for a longer duration.
He takes arsenicum album 30, but stops after a week or so when the symptoms disappear. Can someone tell me the correct dosage and also the duration till he should be taking it?
will taking 200 or 1000 help him? and for how long should it be taken and when?
would appreciate a response.
thank you all.

It is possible he is palliating or suppressing his asthma with the Arsenicum, which might have long term consequences for him. Before advising that he stay on this treatment or increase the potency, it would be prudent to check if the remedy is actually suitable to cure him.
Cure is well defined in homoeopathy. If a medicine must be taking constantly to get improvement, and the improvement completely vanishes on stopping the medicine, then there is no cure but only palliation.

Please post your symptoms here that will help others to learn asthma treatment by a professional homoeopath. In addition, we may be able to suggest few things as we have treated so many asthma cases in the past.
David usually uses the following for case taking.
'GUIDELINES FOR GIVING HOMOEOPATHIC CASE INFORMATION
It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.
1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE.
As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.
Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.
Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior.
Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow.
Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.
If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:
1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like?
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you?
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are? particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like?
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like?'
