question on repeated doses

I wanted to ask what is the reason that in the case of high potency remedies, say 200, the dose is usually not repeated, or if repeated it is not very often.

If repeated close to the first dose, are there any undesirable effects, or is just the repetition useless?

A high potency or any potency for that matter taken too often can actually do what is called a proving of the remedy where you can actually cause the very symptoms of the remedy that it was meant to cure. A higher potency can have a longer lasting effect.

It could make a difference whether you are talking about a chronic or an acute situation.

For chronic, if it is the right remedy for the situation, you want to give it a chance to work. It isn't like other drugs where you have to keep dosing. The right remedy will direct your body to start the healing process. If you have a favorable response then you do NOT want to take another dose yet. At 200C it is common to wait a month before the next dose.

What you are really supposed to do is take the minimal dose. That could mean a single pill of a lower potency and waiting longer than you might think.

My case was alopecia areata, that has been holding for 3 years now. The reason I took a second dose of the remedy that I don't know but its potency (200) is that I had a worsening of my sleeping after 10 days I took a dose (sleeping had improved in the meanwhile). That probably meant for my doctor that the acting of the medicine ceased (I chewed some mint gum in between). I am always concerned about the accuracy of the info I give to him, and this is the reason I ask the question...
