Arsenicum Album: $6.59


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Arsenicum Album is making me depressed

I visited a homeopathy doctor for help with my anxiety and depression. After an extensive interview and blood work, she prescribed Arsenicum Album, 30C, 3 pellets a day. By the third day I started to notice depression setting in, today is day 6 and it's still the same. Is this a case of 'like cures like' and if so, how long will it last? I've heard that sometimes with homeopathy, it gets a little worse before getting better. I'm willing to power through if things will get better in a week. My doctor is on vacation and won't be around to answer this question for a few days. Can anyone help? I'm 38 years old and female. Thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Are you still taking Ars Alb 30c every day?

Stop taking it. When you have a reaction to a remedy,
you stop the remedy and let it work.-taking more you
can overdose, especially for sensitive people.

Perhaps, you only needed it for one day.. By
the third day it was too much.

This sounds like an aggravation, which might have only
lasted a few hours and then lifted if you had just
taken the remedy for one or two days.

It is going to wear off. You can keep reporting in on here,
till your homeo is back.

Yes, I have been taking it everyday. Thanks for your response, I'll stop taking it and will see if the symptoms subside. Maybe this is something I only need to take once or twice a week, like you said, taking it everyday might be causing an overdose.
