One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Good day,

thanks for your reply. So this means I should stop taking them after 15 days?
Also had forgot to mention that I take some supplements. Mainly probiotics to help my gut flora & zinc supplements. Can I keep taking these while taking the graphites 200?

Sorry I think I mis-read your instructions. This means only 3 doses (day 1 & 2) for all the 15 days and that's it?
Also I drink decaff coffee, is this ok? And should I avoid coffe,garlic/onions for all 15 days or just day 1 & 2?

You should take the remedy for 2 days and then wait. Restrictions apply for 2 days. Coffee intake should not be more than 2 cups a day after 2 days.
