How to antidote ant crudum? Please help!

Hi ,
My husband has been belching a lot for months now after taking antimonium crudum 30C...we've tried different remedies and currently taking calcarea carbonica 30c because that's his symptoms right now.
I am hoping this will work but I am wondering if there's other way to antidote it like giving high potency then later give a low potency?
Has anybody has experience with antimonium crudum?
Thanks and hoping for a reply!

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Calc. is one of the anti dotes for ant. crud.

Higher potency could anti dote aggravation or side effects arising from lower potency of a medicine. But it should have been used then and there.

Belching can also find help in a medicine called Carbo Veg. Please read upon it.

But give some time for calc. carb to work. It also helps with gastric disturbances.

Thank you for the reply maheeru...yes, will give sometime for calc carb to work... I gave calc carb 30c but he said he's better with 2 doses a day... would it be better if he just use 200c a day?

Regarding carbo veg, i tried giving it before but he said he doesn't feel ok with it... I rechecked my book and it says "better eructations" while that of my husband's is "worse belchings"...

Calc. carb must not be repeated frequently in adults.

Ok if he improves on 200c, fine, but do not give him too many doses. May be restrict between half and one dozen doses. If he is sensitive do dosage in water.

Ok one symptoms worse for eructation is there. Will have to see more symptoms to think about other choices.

Hi maheeru, his symptoms improved a lot with calcarea carbonica...he stopped taking last Sunday I think...but he still has belchings once in a while....am still checking his symptoms...he has swelling of both lower eyelids...then last Saturday his nose bled while washing his face in the morning, around 9am.. I gave kali carb 200 but belchings came in vengeance so he reached for calc carb 30c agaib... haven't tried giving calc carb 200 though...
Will update you once I get to see more symptoms maheeru... thanks again for the help

Hi maheeru, just want to update you...after calc carb i gave my husband 1 dose of nux vomica 200c...and you Know what? It's been 3 days that he hasn't had belchings! Whereas before it's several times a day..so fingers crossed he's cured! Thanks for the replies maheeru, you made me more confident with my Choice of calcarea at that time
.. I am on to his next problems, which is sneezing a lot when smelling strong scents (which I gave phosphorus 30c) today....his fistula (ears, anus)...and his eyes (growth and swelling of eyelids, frequent lachrimation of left eye, color blindedness)...will start a new thread for each problem though...
Again, my thanks!

No jane every symptom should not be taken in isolation. The best approach is to see them in a holistic manner so that a medicine covers most or all of the complaints well.

Yes I should do that maheeru thanks a lot for reminding!

Hello Maheeru

You write Calc Carb must not be repeated frequently in adults ? Will this be different for kids though ? Please clarify.

Yes this will be different for children. In children this medicine is indicated frequently and it's repetition is generally tolerated well in children.

Thank you. It is very heartening to read that. My daughter 9 years old shows a need for it due to the fact that she has many food allergies , stomach upset, bloating , gastric distress due to that and immunity problems like catching colds much more easily than her friends and sometimes the colds turning into bronchial disturbances. I once read that Calc Carb 200 once every 7 days was a good fit for these symptoms. Would you agree with this ? Or have a different potency and frequency and duration suggestion ?

Thank you again.

Is this the first time you are going to try Calc. carb for her?

Before the potency choice and deciding repetition, would like to make sure the medicine is indicated. Can you give some more details about her making use of the following questions?

1) Write down worsening and bettering factors and any associated symptoms about these complaints.
2) Details about emotional state, personality, temperament, fears/anxieties.
3) Details like cravings/aversions, climate/temperature preference, thirst/hunger/sleep/sex/discharge issues and about physical appearance and nature of occupation.
