Calcarea Carb after BryoniaHello,
As both above incompatible to each other - how long should one wait to administer Calcarea Carb 6 after using Bryonia 30; for an infant?
24hrs, 48hrs, 72hrs, - or more?
May God Bless all of us,

They are not incompatible if the symptoms clearly call for a change of remedy to Calc carb. No remedy is incompatible with any other, since you do not take them together. The notes you will find for antidotes, incompatibles, complementaries, follows well and followed well by are meant to help guide new homoeopaths through their first years of practice, and are not actual rules in homoeopathy.
So you should not be administering Calc-carb if the Bryonia is still working (there is clear aggravation), the symptoms are still clearly belonging to Bryonia, or the patient is continuing to improve.
You would only move to Calc-carb when there is a clear change of symptoms that call for a change of remedy. So the patient would stop showing all the symptoms that call for Bryonia, and instead would show symptoms of Calc-carb. No patient can be two remedies at the same time, so there must be a marked change of state from one to another.
If there is need to alternate remedies, it would again only be done as the symptoms change back and forth, not mechanically. It is possible that if someone needs a lot of alternation you actually are not seeing the correct remedy, which encompasses both set of symptoms.
