Carcinosin - How should it work ?

I posted a related question before. Some background : We have a 3 and half year old toddler who have had many colds/cough. Our main concern is that he get wheezing everytime he gets a cold.

Our homeopath has prescribed Carcinocin based on his profile which is this :
He is a bright, sensitive child. He cares for others and very loving. He doesn't like to be scolded, he is ok with us teaching him to do the right thing, but he gets upset/hurt if we scold him sternly. He does well at his pre-school and gets along very well with teachers and other students. He likes interactive/make-believe play(Spiderman etc..). He is more adept on field type play, like kicking a ball etc.. then climbing intricate bars (jungle-gym) in a park. He loves reading books/hearing stories and can read small words. He is a little under-confident when trying new things, but once he tries it, he does it very well (like riding a bike).

When he was about 2.5 years old, he had tics (eyes blinking, muscle twitching) that lasted a few weeks and went away.

Given this profile, I wanted to get your opinions on the remedy. The remedy is Carcinocin 200c (3 doses) and then 22c twice a day thereafter. We gave him the 3 doses (in the last two days). But yesterday, I felt he was a bit more 'hyper' than usual. More jumpier.. So, I am concerned if it was any side effect ? I have also read that such remedies show similar symptoms before relieving it & curing it.

Please advise if I should be concerned ...& ok to continue the remedy as prescribed.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
First stop the remedy. Consider. Is this behavior absolutely new? Or has he been like this before? Carcinosin is often given to clrify the case as it were.
Dont agree with the daily repetions though.

Thanks. To answer the question 'has he been like this before' . Yes, a few times before (when he had had the tics). Does that help ?

This could be a good indication actually. You really should notify the homeopath you are working with. As I mentioned the carcinosin is not really a constitional remedy per se so another remedy may be needed soon. The rule of thumb regarding prescriptions involving repetions would be to stop the remedy if there is either an obvious improvement or aggravation. Here you should stop an have the case re-examined. Homoeopathy is about the MINIMUM DOSE.

Sounds like a good old fashioned case of aggravation to me. I would stop the remedy and wait for improvement now, the stimulus has been given, and hello up there Matt ;)

Hi Sycotic
I don't have homeopathy background/knowledge and don't understand much your email. Anyhow it scares me a lot as my daughter who is suffering from severe eczema is using Carcinosin LM5 at the moment. Could you pls refer to my post titled 'Severe Eczema on 10yo girl- pls help' for more details and advise what i should do now.

Thank you.

Taking the remedy on a daily basis does not sound like a good idea at all. Was this daily dose prescribed indefinitely? If so, I would find a new homeopathist. Occassionally daily does are prescribed, but in very low doses (6c, lm1, 6x etc)and usually not following a substantial dose like 200c.

Actually treefrog LMs are typically given on a daily basis. Not a concern provided contact is closely kept with prescriber.
