Doctor prescribed a large dose of well-selected medicine. Is he correct?

When in India, I was prescribed "lyco 200" once a week for 3 months by a renowed classical homoeopath.

It was to be taken thus:

Put 5 pills in 1/2 liter of water and succuss 50 times and drink the whole 1/2 liter.

A friend of mine, who's a homoeopath too, said I was taking a "large dose" of Lyco 201 (yes, 201- and not 200) by doing so and should take only a spoon of water from it and advised that I antidote the Lyco.

When contacted, my doctor said it was okay even if i mistakenly took the whole 1/2 litre in one go, as that'd, theoretically, count as a single dose only, and so it's theoretically equivalent to a "spoon of it".

I'd like to know if my doctor is right in saying that 1 drop/ 1 spoon or even a 1/2 litre of the same medicine are equivalent if taken "in one go"?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Your doctor is right
The quantity of the homoeopathic remedy, per se, is not that important. The patient may take a few pellets or a lot of them - it does not matter. It is the frequency that makes the difference. Every time the remedy is taken, it ‘strikes’ the body to respond. Taking a homoeopathic remedy once is called one strike. The effect of the remedy starts as soon as it is put in the mouth. Every time it is taken, it repeats the strike
