This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Have you been giving homoeopathy before?

I also need to ask if you know much about our medicines, because it seems to me you have described one of them almost exactly, as if you have read about it.

That remedy is Argentium nitricum.

6pills twice a day so 12? so many pills?did they cost much? and thanks for your answer
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
Well ok then, that is good! I would get hold of Arg-nit 30c, in Oral Liquid form if possible.

To take the remedy, you will need to hit the bottle 5 times, and then place 3 drops into 100mls of clean water. Stir very thoroughly, and take 2 teaspoons out and into the mouth.

This is one dose. Do this 3 times in total, once each day. For each dose start with a fresh 100mls of water.

Stop if any of your symptoms appear to worsen. This is usually a good sign but also means you need to wait and allow it to pass.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
so i will do it only for 3days?and if the symptoms worsen in the first day how long i will wait for the second dose?and is it possible that the symptoms wont get worse and just get better ?
then how many mls of remedy i have to buy?a little bottle?
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
For starters you will only do 3 days yes, although you might only do just 1 if you get a reaction straight away.

If the symptoms worse you will not take any further doses without consulting me.

No, the symptoms will not worsen in reaction the remedy and not get better. They might do that on their own of course, but the action of a remedy is very short-lived.

The size of the bottle you buy is not very important. As you can see, you will hardly be using any of it.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
I can see two of us have given advice here. My advice on potency and dosage is to minimize any aggravation you get from the medicine. You will need to decide on who you wish to follow.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
okay i understand,i decide your advice to prevent the aggravation danger,if i dont find in liquid form and they have only pills how many i will need?
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
Dear tasosgast,

Since you are new to homeopathy, you need to understand
that homeopathy does not work like western medicine.

The homeopath chooses a remedy that matches the symptoms
you are having and what makes things better and worse for
you .

When a remedy is found that is a close match to all these things,
it raises your life force energy to clear out what is out of balance.
The way the homeopath knows how many doses you need
and the potency ( you are going to take 30 c, 30, 30c 30ch and
30ck are all the same thing) is by your reaction to the remedy.

So if you have a reaction to dose one, or two or three, where
you feel a bit worse, this means the remedy is working to clear
you. It will pass, but you have to wait while it passes and then
you will most probably notice you feel better.

When you feel better you don't take the remedy until you feel
worse again or if you feel you got somewhat better but
things are not moving forward.

If you have a reaction and take more, you will be taking too
much and can feel worse again- but it will wear off.

The goal is that you end up feeling better, and then needing
to take the remedy at longer and longer intervals, until
you no longer need it. Just report on here to Evocationer what is
going on after you take it and he will let you know what to do.

When people get a panic attack, what usually goes on is that they
then become afraid of having another one. So what happened
with the first one, may have been due to just something that
was odd with you that day. All the things you are feeling have
to do with secondary fear- the fear of another panic attack.

Google Dr. Claire Weekes- she has passed on, but you can read her books
on this on the internet. It explains what is going on, why it is going on,
and how to calm yourself down.

You will get better.

Best,

thank u so much Simone,your answer was really helpful and Evocationer's too :)
u gave me hope!!(that means so much to me) and i really apreciate it ,i will get the remedy today and i will post my reactions here so Evocationer knows .
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
I can't imagine you will be unable to find a liquid dose. It is pretty standard from most pharmacies. However, if for some reason you can only get pillules, you should also obtain a small (15-25ml) bottle with a dropper, and also a small amount of alcohol (like brandy, rum, vodka, or even pure ethanol alcohol if you can get it). You can then make up your own oral liquid dose.

My personal preference would not be to use the pillules directly, in case you are overly sensitive.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
okay i will follow your advice because im sensitive indeed,even when i drink coca cola or coffee i get rapidly more stressed,so after your advice i wouldn't risk to take directly pillules ;) bye for now ,i'll get the remedy today and after the first dose i will tell u the reactions !
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
Hello again,yesterday i took the first dose in liquid form as u suggested me.I think that i felt a little better but not anything special.today i decided to try take the second dose in pillule form because my system didnt react strangely and so i did.but i didnt felt anything today.now its night and i am like usual..anxious.
should i take the 3d dose tommorow as planned? why i didnt face any aggravations or the symptoms didnt get any worse or feel better? i cant feel any real results :/
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
You are being too impatient. As I instructed, take all 3 doses one after another unless there is a marked aggravation of your symptoms. Do not alter my instructions for dosing. You will need to wait 7 days from the last dose before we do an assessment of the reaction.

There are reasons I have given the remedy in liquid dose. Taking a dry dose after a liquid dose can interfere with the normal action of the remedy, including antidoting it.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
oh i see. so i will take the last dose again in liquid form?
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
Yes if there has been no worsening or noticeable improvement, take that last dose.

Typically aggravation will happen within the first 3 days, it usually peaks about 2 days after it starts, and then diminishes from that point. Improvement may not be noticeable until after this process has finished.

There will be a variety of reasons for a remedy not appearing to work as intended. Of course the remedy may be wrong, but it may also be an issue with the potency, with the dosage, or with some kind of obstacle to cure in the patient themselves (like medication or drug use).

However, since homoeopathy works slowly to cure chronic complaints, it is important not to be too impatient. Haste ruins cases.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
2days before the first dose I took one lexotanil because i had insomnia and strong anxiety in the night . is it possible that this is an obstacle?
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
If you take that regularly, or anytime you experience the symptoms, then yes it will create an obstacle. In that case both potency and dosage will need to be adjusted to try and compensate for the suppressive influence of the medication.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
no i don't do it regularly. i take about 1in 2-3months when i can't stand the symptoms or at special occasions
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
hello again, it's the first day after the third dose ,well i dont see anything different but it's too soon.I have 6more days to wait .in the meantime i told my best friend about the homeopathy and he wants to try it too for his problems. i send him the questionary and he replied. should i open a new thread about him or post it here?
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
Everyone should have their own thread. It is too hard to keep the different sets of symptoms clear otherwise.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
you're right so I'm gonna start another thread for him
 
tasosgast 5 years ago
In terms of your remedy, once enough time has passed I will get you to go through each symptom you presented here, and tell me if it is better, worse or the same. If better or worse, I need you to give a % to approximate how much.

At that point I will decide if we need to repeat, wait, change the potency, or change the remedy.

Keep an eye out for any new symptoms, any current symptoms that develop new qualities, or any old symptoms that reappear.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
okay ,i will keep my eyes open and feel the changes through the days and keep u informed after the time passes
