sepia overdose - how to antidote sepia ???

I have taken too much sepia too often and now I experience side effects. When I first took sepia, it HELPED ME A LOT with my problems .. But after a while I began to have these symptoms again .
What can I do to antidote the Sepia ?? I know that these side affects are because of the sepia overdose.. because as I said : the very first time I took sepia, it helped me immediately with all my female problems... I continued to take sepia too often for many months and after some months the problems came back much stronger ... .... please help !!!

I have tried to antidote sepia by drinking too much coffee, but drinking peppermint tea etc, but nothing happens !!! What can I do ??? Some homeopaths recommend Nux Vomica to antidote sepia, is it true?

Dont do anything. These aggravations will go away with time. That's for sure. Now you have learnt not to overdose.

Thank you for Your reply.

But do you know how long it will take before all these aggravations og away ??

I have taken sepia 30C , sepia 200C and sepia 1M for 16 months. The last dose was 5 months ago ...I have not taken anything the last 5 months, but these aggravations continue !!!!!

pulsatilla ia an antidote of sepia...these remedies often act as mutual antidotes; and so it happens that frequently, when they are given in alternation, as the custom is of some physicians, no result is observed. In such cases, it is often sufficient to suspend the administration of one of them in order to get a prompt and satisfactory effect from the other.

Dont take Nux Vomica, it will intensify the effect of Sepia.


Relationship of Sepia
Complementary: Nat mur; Phosph. Nux intensifies action. Guaiacum often beneficial after Sepia. - See more at: http://www.homeopathy.com.pk/boericke/r-s/sepia-officinalis.....

Sepia is antidotes by the following remedies.


Antidoted by : Vegetable acids, Nitri spir. dulc., Acon., Ant. crud., Ant. tart., Rhus tox.

1M is definitely a very deep dose, and must be timed very carefully. You have done mechanical dosing which is always discouraged. As a rule of thumb, never repeat 1 M dose before 6 months, and never repeat 200c dose before 1 month, and never repeat 30c dose before 3 days. 1 dose means 1 drop without split dose.

Its good that you have found your similimum, and many people fail to even find that. Now we have to go very carefully to find the exact detox without messing and changing your similimum. Above is a list of antidotes, which you have to try in sequence. First order Rhus Tox 30 and take only 1 drop and wait for a week. These remedies are frequently observed to detox sepia so one of them should work for you. Make sure to not take more than 1 drop if there is no improvement. If it improves, you found the detox. And if no improvement then take next remedy next week. So in 2-3 weeks its expected that you should pin point the remedy. When you have pin pointed it, then make sure you only take it for improvement and not mechanical dosing as you had done previously.

Hope that helps. R.

The story at here:

2 doses of Nux Vomica 1M had horrible aggravations for 3 years for a man. 1M must be taken ONLY when one is 100% sure that its the similimum and then also take only 1 drop, not more. 1M is usually nail in the coffin when repeating lower potencies are prolonging the cure.

Thank you very much for your answers.

Dr Rahat, you state that Pulsatilla is an antidote to Sepia. In what potency should it antidote Sepia?

Dr Awsis Nazir, thank you for Your detailed answer. But I feel a little bit confused since I got 2 different answers here.
And I also see that Sepia can be antidoted by vegetable acids. So will for example vinegar antidote Sepia?

dear ella,

Awaisnaz is not a doctor - he is a patient who
has posted on this forum. You can click
any posters name and see their profile and then
click on all their posts on here to get an idea of
who they are.

Dr. Rahat is a homeopath with a practice.

Plz follow the doctor Rahat. He is your prescription doctor.

To Simone:
Ofcourse I am not a doctor. sorry for that I should really have made it clear.
awaisnaz 9 years ago

no reason to be sorry, bc due to cultural reasons-
I guess, people from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh
and other countries as well, call anyone who
suggests anything- Doctor. This leads to confusion
for others who think, well..everyone is calling them
Doctor so I guess they must be one and they don't
check the profile.

Even if you tell people you are not a doctor, half of
them still call you Doctor anyway.Since this forum
is read worldwide, it is rather a mess to say the least.

I have seen in many other forums, that members are entitled like 'Moderator', etc. Perhaps, categories here may include 'Moderator', 'Doctor', 'Golden Member', and 'Silver Member'.

Who is the moderator here?

Thank you for your replies, all of you!!

Dr. Rahat , I will order Nitri Spiritus Dulcis 30x and I will report after 5 days.

What about the other homeopathic medicines I have taken? Do they need to be antidoted as well? (there was NO overdose there as with Sepia, but I see that some of them are similar to Sepia, so maybe they have intensified the remedy?)
ellahansen 9 years ago
Dr. Rahat - With due respect, sir Pulstila is inimical to Sepia. If pulstila and sepia are alternated, it will cause severe stomach issues.

Yes dear, you are right...

mutual antidotes means inimical, i said the same thing :)

It was just a point of view of materia medica, but you can see my prescription is diffrent :)

I didn't find the remedy you suggested at these pharmacies I asked for it. They said that they could order it, but now it is Christmas and New Year soon so it can take quite a bit time...

But I read here that homeopathic remedies can be antidoted this way :

http://hpathy.com/homeopathy-papers/the-aggravation-zapper/ ....

what do you think ? have you heard of that ???
ellahansen 9 years ago
Dear Ella,
There are lots of opinions on anti doting even among the homeopaths. The link you have suggested is another research paper on the same topic.

My intuition says that this method will not work. If this method would work, then a 1m potency should antidote the aggravation of a lower potency say a 200c potency, which we know is never the case.

In another opinion, a 6c potency of any remedy is the antidote of all its potencies. You may try it with 6c potency with recommendation by Dr Rahat because that would be a safer bet than taking 1m+ potency antidoting as suggested by the above link.

But, imho, as the respected Dr David said on this forum that there is no antidote including coffee or anything else but another homeopathic remedy which reverses the effect.

I read somewhere that respected simone717 used acupuncture to ward off the aggravation of a homeopathic remedy for his daughter. I think it should work because both homeopathy and acupuncture are energy medicines. Simone717 may have more to say on this issue.

If you want to order the Nitris go to Helios Homeopathic Pharm-

it will take 7 to 10 days, they ship worldwide. However they
do not have 30x. the highest x they have is 12X or you can
go to 30c.

Ask Dr. R what potency he would choose 12x or 30c.

Have no idea where you reside, but not Acupuncture but
Shiatsu Massage will do a good job of antidoting if you get
a person who is well trained. They work the spine, you wear
clothes, everything gets unblocked and flushed out. If you
cannot find authentic Shiatsu, get authentic Acupressure ( very similar) I don't agree with what David said at all - that is one
way to to do it, but I have seen Shiatsu take care of quite a
few aggravations in just a few hours. I am sure acupuncture
could work also, as that is what healed David when he was
extremely ill .
simone717 9 years ago
12x would be fine.

Take dose as directed above.

After successfully treating myself with 30C Sepia, as an experiment I took 10M which brought back all of my symptoms plus aggravation and proving. I rode it out to see how long it would take to work itself out. If I recall correctly, it was 8 months.

No doctor here will take your case on self medication.

If you like self medication. Please consider Lehning company or similar company homeopathic products. They are compound medicines, and very low potency, thus they dont do harm and may cure wide range of physical ailments.

You have have enough of Sepia. Just leave it and be happy. In future, just take single doses of Sepia 30c when u need it. Confirm with Dr R.
