This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Our remedies are not selected that way. Folliculinum will only help you if the whole picture of your health fits it. A homoeopathic medicine must be matched to all your symptoms, including those that affect your mental and emotional levels.

Any remedy that is taken without doing this, runs a risk of producing side effects. Those side effects may become permanent in some people, until cured by more appropriate treatment.

It is also almost impossible to choose your own medicine. Each one of our 5000+ remedies has a profile that needs to be carefully matched to you, and the differences between them can be very fine.

M Control.
'She feels she is controlled by another. She is out of sorts with her rhythms. She is living out someone else's expectations. She loses her will. She over-estimates her energy reserves. She is full of self-denial. She becomes a rescuer, addicted to rescuing people. She becomes drained. She has become a doormat. She has forgotten who she is. She has no individuality.' [Assilem]
'There is a very strong link here with Carcinosinum, and it is not surprising that Folliculinum works well when Carc. is indicated but does not act.' [Assilem]
M Patients [under extreme pressure] not responding to homoeopathy.
c Pressure of a personality or group on an individual; a dominant or possessive parent, friend or marriage partner; and certainly where there is intolerant religious dominance.
c Pressure of circumstance or work, such as that suffered by people who have worked to exhaustion point over a period of time, and seem to be incapable of recuperation, or even responding to the indicated homoeopathic medicine.
c Pressure in adults of continued ill health or slow recovery after recurrent or severe infection. This covers, especially in my experience, young men after glandular fever or presenting with what is becoming identified as 'post viral syndrome'. In these cases I always start by using Carcinosinum, but add Folliculinum if the Carcinosinum does not achieve a lasting response. The same applies to patients not responding after cortisone treatment.
[Dorothy Cooper, British Homoeopathic Journal, April 1990]
