Selecting a right potency is a difficult task for homoeopath since from the Hahnemannian time to the present day. So selection of potency is a very important facto in homoeopathy therapeutics. But many difference opinions among the homoeopathis. But some fundamental rules are given below.

3. Disease in a functional zone.
4. Case not responding to low/medium potency
