Advice on dose and potencyHello,
last year in March I had been suffering from health anxiety.
Someone advised me to take:
Lehning L72 for anxiety (homeopathic)
I took it three times a day (20 drops). The first day I felt a very good improvement on mood. Then on the second or third day I had an severe aggravation which scared me so much that I stopped taking that medicine but rather took other homeopathic medicines. The anxiety got worse and I started taking treatment by proper Homeopathic doctor. But I also started taking allopathic antidepressant medicine (Venlafaxine 75 mg). After 4 months (last year August) things got quiet better and in the 5th month (last year September) I got married and my anxiety vanished. After the sixth motnh I stopped taking the homeopathic medicine but continued the antidepressant. This year in March/April my anxiety is starting to come back. I started tapering off the antidepressant (Reducing 7 mg every three weeks) I started at 75 mg Anti-Depressant and now Alhamdulillah I am at 45 mg. But the anxiety got worse again especially 3 - 4 days ago.
Now, two days ago I started taking again Lehning L72 (because I thought that If that medicine triggered the aggravation, then it should be able to heal me too). I took L72 two days ago around 4 PM (but only 10 drops this time). Suddenly I felt much better the whole day and night. Also the next day (i.e. yesterday was quite good) Around 4 - 5 PM I started having (slight!) negative thoughs again and I again took a dose and after an hour the improvement came back again. Overall I do feel better.
Now my question is: Should I keep the dose (ie once a day 10 drops) or should I increase it to twice a day? Im afraid that increasing the frequency could trigger a very bad aggravation again.

1stly every subsequent dose of medicine (homoeopathic) MUST be modified.....
-allo meds will interfere---an d no real help in big pic will be had..
but here is tip--
noting time amelioration lasted (after 1st dose)..
no other dose while amelioration is occurring--
as soon as amelioration is lessening--redose--note the time period between doses--and use this as the interval between subsequent dosing..
if any new symptom at all in any area at all in ur being comes up--and stays --med being used is incorrect--new med is to be sought
