Coffee with Argentum Metallicum?

Hi, I've been reading up about coffee with homeopathic remedies and contrary to what I believed, I found out it does not antidote every remedy.
It would be a great help to me if anybody knew if coffee is acceptable while taking the remedy Argentum Metallicum.
Obviously until I find out otherwise I will not be drinking any coffee, but once the school year starts up I'll need to know if I need to find a coffee substitute.
Thank you so much!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Coffee does not antidote a curative remedy. They are more powerful than coffee and quite difficult to budge.

It can however dismantle the effect of a palliative one. This is because the disease is still working underneath to undermine health, and coffee will impose its own drug state on you removing the palliative effect. Palliative remedies are quite fragile, easily upset by all sorts of external influences, not just coffee.

Some people are so sensitive to coffee however, that it can make them sick while they continue to use it. This might make it difficult to stay healthy even after a good curative remedy has been taken.

Thank you so much for your response!
I didn't know the difference between the two of those, so I looked it up and I understand that a curative remedy completely fixes the disease and a palliative just masks the symptoms?
I am taking Argentum Metallica for compulsive skin picking, hyperhydrosis, and an anxiety disorder, so I suppose it would be considered a curative remedy, but I'm not sure. It seems to me that it is curative, do you have any input?
Once again, thank you so much!

Well not much advice I can offer you on that, not knowing anything about you or your case. You will know if it is curative soon enough - cure in homoeopathy is marked and profound, lasts for a fairly long time without too much repeating of the medicine (is stable) and affects the person on all levels. Palliation on the other hand seems good in the beginning, but it tends to get shakier as time goes on, requires constant redosing to keep the person ok, often misses a number of symptoms or even a whole part of the person's health, and will tend to collapse at the first major challenge to the person's health.

Palliation sometimes can be so effective in the beginning it can be very seductive. However, cure always starts with aggravtion first, then the improvements set in as the aggravation diminishes. Palliation on the other hand starts with no aggravation, just the sudden and very marked disappearance of symptoms. It is almost too good to be true (and often is).

It is not always simple to see what is truly happening when you are the patient, but as long as you have an honest and skilled homoeopath supervising, they can work it out.

Thank you so much for all of your help-You really explained this very clearly to me, and I'll be sure to consult my doctor, since yes, I see how it would be difficult for you to give me this advice what with not knowing anything about me--But you really helped me out so much, so thank you :)
