Kents rep - duration of remedy

Referring to the duration of remedy in the back of the rep, does it mean take the remedy for that duration of days, or does it mean the particular remedy being one dose, works for that duration?
Please explain/

thanks in advance,

duration is guideline as to how long remedy has been observed lasting--not daily repetition...usually single dose single remedy--

--- and there again, it really depends on the patient. some are 'good" for 30 days after intake of C30 - and some are good for half a year. i don't know, what the kent reperory says in the back, because mine doesn't say anything, but you probably could give the remedies a certain duration. ..... IN AVARAGE - UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES.... for every individual there's gotta be individual treatment, which requires OBSERVATION, OBSERVATION AND OBSERVATION.

thanks for the replies
john your reply was exactly what I was looking for. in the back of the book it states duration, but not exactly whether it was duration of repetition or duration of the power of one dose.
I thought it was that way but was a little unsure as my homeopath has me taking my remedy for several weeks and was wondering how she comes to that conclusion. Is it because of low vitality?

lack of knowledge on homoeopath's part...

you are best to decide---if using LM potencies then daily repetition is typical--ONLY if remedy chosen is most homoeopathic to case---otherwise foolish to repeat as such..

You may also take a remedy for months (!) daily - in chronic diseases-if in water and potency is slightly increased (by succussing) every time.
Hahnemenn writes about it in 5th ed. of Organon and in his "Chronic diseases".

But always, if any reaction occurs, you need to stop taking your remedy.
You never take dry remedy for several weeks-if your homeopath advises that-time to change him/her.

Duration of action is very approx. Depends greatly on individual but you may say that, say aconite acts very briefly (which means that it's good for acute disorders but may need repetition more often or should be followed by a remedy which acts longer and more deeply, like sulphur) , lachesis-longer, and causticum (like sulphur) very long.
In practice it means different things to different homeopaths.
