Sulphur for IBS - problem with previous taking of Silicea

I'm 38 yrs old. Last 3 years I'm taking homeopatic remedies ocasionaly.
First I had problemx with chronic sinusitis (paranazal synuses) and frequent colds /throat infections; problem with anxiety (fear of mortal ilness). My digestion was slow with hard, lumpy stools, or like sheep dung, minor problems with hemmhoroides due to hard stools, but with no other symptoms.
My homeopath first started with Argentum nitricum C30, which helped me with anxiety, but not with colds/sinusitis. After 6 months, homeopath gave me Natrium muriaticum 1M which provided some help with colds. 6 months after that homeopath gave me Silicea 1M which finaly solved my problem with sinuses /colds and cough, and I was able to stop drinking antibiotics for last 1,5 years. Durring this period I was taking Silicea 1M, or Argentum nitricum C30 ocasionaly. 7 months ago I had eye infection / itching (after stress on work), that Silicea 1M or Argentum nitricum C30 didn't heal. My homeopath gave me Argentum nitricum C200. My eyes healed, but after 1 month from than, I started to have digestion problems: 5-6 stools /day (altering stools like sheep dung with loose, bright brown smelly stools); abdomenal cramps/pains, bloating, offensive gasses, and now sometimes nousea and hartburn, and problems with hemerhiodes increased with strong rectal itching that sometimes wakes me up at night. Silicea 1M or Argentum nitricum C30 or C200 are not helping me with these IBS simptoms. Rectal itching even worsenes after Silicea. My homeopath persists in her believs that Argentum Nitricum is the only remedy for my IBS, even though it is not helping me during last 6 months.
I started reading about these symptoms and homeopatic remedies on my own and came to conclusion that Sulphur would be best for my IBS. I also used your remedy finding tool and entered my symptoms. Result fo tool was also that sulphur is remedy for my current condition. Problem is that I was taking Silicea, which is antidote for Sulphur? Should I try to cure IBS with Sulphur, or some other homeopatic remedy?

Please help and thanks in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
If a person does well on a remedy and later takes it's antidote remedy, the latest remedy won't undo all the accomplishments of the remedy taken earlier.

Either insist your homoeopath change the remedy, or change your homoeopath. Do not start self-prescribing. You will very likely make things worse. We get people on the forum here all the time suffering side effects from self-prescribed medicines or medicines given to them by people with no real training in homoeopathy.

Sulphur has so many symptoms, that is almost always comes up very high when you use software, but it does not mean that it will cure you. And any remedy that does not cure you may produce side effects instead.

It is quite likely, that if your homoeopath has had to use 3 remedies for one disease (manifesting in different places in your body) then they have not yet found your correct remedy. Either stand up to them and insist they make a better prescription, or find someone else who will retake your case, looking for one medicine to cover all the symptoms occurring together (regardless of how many body parts are apparently affected).

Thanks for your answer.
Unfortunately, in area where I live, homeopath I visited is only person that is practicing clasical homeopaty. I can find 2 more homeopaths, but they practice clinical homeopathy. Maybe I will try with one of them.
