**Antivirus** please help PTSD & anxiety!

Hi,

I'm hoping for some help with remedy advice/ dosage for my foster child who suffers Post traumatic stress and severe anxiety.

He came to live with us when he was 1 & is now 7. I'm happy to give more information if required but basically he suffered abuse and neglect from his birth mother. He 'appears' happy and charming to those who do not know him but underneath is suffering. These are some traits:

-Trouble sleeping, can take a couple of hours, but once asleep stays asleep most nights
-Nightmares
-Hypervigilant
-Avoids
-Runs away
-Excessive talking, usually same topics
-Wants control, obsessive about time, plans for the day, always questioning everything
-Is capable of much but will avoid as he is has no belief in himself. ie - can dress himself but wants me to
-self sabotage, ie. he really wants to participate in an acitivity but will end up avoiding it or ruining it
-Very small for his age (height wise)
-Sweats on the head at night
-Worse when hot
-Eats for comfort when anxious
-Difficulty concentrating, short attention span unless it is one of his topics
-Wants to please but struggles to
-Charming
-Thirsty, wants ice
-tummy aches
-always going to the toilet but not always doing anything
-impulsive, when anxious (which is constant) will make very poor decisions
-affectionate, likes hugs most of the time, will sometimes push away if angry though
-frustrated anger
-is always bored (his words!)
- hates being alone, always wants to be around people
-scared of dark
-doesn't cope well with change

Can give further info if needed.

I have given him Stramonium for the last week. It made a huge difference. He was calmer, talked less, was ok to be on his own more. Dosage of pilules 30c, initially a few times a day, dropped this to twice a day and am now dropping 1 x pilules into 1/3 cup water, mixing, giving 1 teaspoon. I feel he may have plateaued over the last few days. It is hard to say as he has gone back to school after holidays so his anxiety would naturally be heightened with the change.
Should I continue to dose twice per day? Or is it time to find the next remedy?
I am also giving him Melatonin 6x before bed, and a combination remedy called Insomnia which has Capsicum, Chamomilla, Coffea, Ferrum Phos, Gelsemium, Hyos, Kali Phos, Mag Phos, Passiflora (all 6x). These seem to help him and it takes less time for him to go to sleep now.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Any help greatly appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi,

He is taking too many remedies and
Too many doses. One cannot really tell what is doing what , and what is too much? Things that are possible overdoses can cause new symptoms or old things to come back.

You need guidance. I suggest you
Do a new thread, ask for sameer vermani in your headline. He is a real homeopath in San Diego and has been helping some people on here.

Put the link of this thread into your new thread so you do not have to repeat things.

Hi Emmlee,

Seems like people are not available right now.

Is it possible for you to work with a homeopath in person ? If you need names let me know your area.

Right now on here , you could use the tiny edit button at bottom of your first post and change the headline and put Antivirus in there.

He has a form he will post, he is doing good work with people on here,
And taking on a lot of cases.

Thanks Simone, I'm in Australia. I will try Antivirus for help first as we didn't have any luck with seeing a homeopath in person here, but perhaps we were just unlucky.
