Arsenicum Album: $6.59


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Arsenicum Album anxiety

hi there

I've been suffering from anxiety/palpitation for a long time.
My doctor prescribed Cipralex and it was good. But I dont want to take allopatic medicine my entire life.

I had a cold allergy when I was young, and now I dont feel well when in cold weather. I like warm weather.

Arsenicum album is helping me feeling normal again.

I need to take one dose(3 pellets) 30ch once a week(self prescribed). So one dose is lasting a week.

Is it safe?

Its been a month.

ps: the minus is that it is making me very irritable.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
How do you know your irritability is due to the remedy?

One dose of 30ch potency once a week is considered pretty safe. How many doses have you taken?

Have you taken any other remedy earlier and in what potency? Do you think you are sensitive to potencies?

If Ars Alb is helping you feel normal again, its likely that the cause of your irritability is not Ars Alb.

I am not always irritated so it might not be due to arsenic.

one month ago I took 30ch dose 3 times a day for 5 days and was feeling good...after5 days I took 200ch once a day for 5 days again and I think I proved it because symptoms returned and I felt again really bad.
I had to antidote with opium and nux.

After two weeks I stared to take 30ch once a week.

I only had 2 doses.

Actually I would say any new or exaggerated symptoms have to be considered part of the state, and therefore part of the remedy reaction.

The problem with getting advice here, is nobody knows if this remedy is the right one, and so it is difficult to judge what is happening and give advice.

You may be proving the remedy, you have suppressed your symptoms and created a new condition, you may be taking too large a dose, you may have moved away from Arsenicum and into a new remedy state, Arsenicium might only be a partial similar. There are a lot of possibilities really.

Depending on which one of those situations is arising here, would determine the action you would take, although the one safest course is always to stop the remedy for a period of time and see what happens.

but how long can I take arsenicum album and be safe?

There is no real answer to that question. Some people need more of a remedy, some people need much less. Take too much and you can create serious problems, take too little and you will never be cured.

This is why you need a homoeopath supervising and prescribing. They should have the training and experience to manage the extended use of a medicine, if such use is necessary.

What do you mean by 'create serious problem'?
What could happen?

I've been to homeopath and prescribed argentum nitricum but after few doses I felt so deppresed that I had to stop the treatment.
